Most commonly, the term presence refers to women’s physical attendance in the legislature, sometimes to their rank, and occasionally to their diversity.

A diverse array of women occupying the full range of available positions indicates they are not ghettoized.
Drawing upon critical deliberative theory, my framework overcomes a number of problems cited in the quality of democratization literature. First, a rich body of normative and theoretical claims informs my framework. Critical deliberative theory does not resolve the debates about what quality democracy should look like or what its goals should be, but it is firmly grounded in a dense set of normative goals, and sets out these goals quite clearly at the outset. Second, the just debate approach focuses on institutional levels of political inequality that can be documented, meaning my framework can be operationalized across cases.
State Responsiveness Critical deliberative theorists argue the purpose of public debate is twofold: to increase contestation and change popular opinion and to “make possible the move from thinking to committed action” (Young 2000, 69).

I use a disaggregated, feminist-informed definition of the state.
