" To engender local government is an attempt to change the balance of political power at the community level to be more inclusive of women and gender issues. It tries to correct for earlier processes of citizenship that viewed women as politically irrelevant...Engendering local government therefore requires we use the conceptual tools of governance and power sharing to analyze women's experiences in local government."
