Recent research in China has focused on the role of women in politics in the context of the recent socioeconomic change and political divisions. Using longitudinal data from the China Family Panel Studies, researchers found that female community directors were more prevalent than male directors in urban areas, however they were less common in rural areas. No matter where, female community directors had greater human capital, and residents in communities run by women had higher satisfaction with their lives and mental health.
The impact of child mortality
A recent study looked into the relationship between women’s leadership and rates of mortality for children, and found that an increase in female participation in government programs was linked to lower rates of under-five mortality.
