This paper examines whether there is a greater proportion of women represented in urban politics than in provincial and federal legislatures. Case studies of 12 cities in Ontario were conducted and compared to data about female representation in the Canadian House of Commons. The findings reveal that women are not more represented at the local level than at other levels of government.
