Political Science: The State of the Discipline II

By Ada W. Finifter | Go to book overview
In contrast to the results for women, multimember districts and at-large voting systems have been found in many cases to disadvantage African Americans and Latinos. See Persons ( 1991) and Fraga ( 1991) for reviews of this research. Unfortunately, most of the research on women and minorities has not examined the effects of electoral systems on women of color. Notable exceptions are: Karnig and Welch ( 1979) who found that African-American women do about as well in at-large as in district municipal elections, indicating that the findings for women (dominated by whites) and minorities (dominated by men) cannot be assumed to be true for minority women; Welch and Herrick ( 1992) who found that African-American, Latino, and white women all fare slightly better with at-large municipal electoral systems, although other factors are more important than electoral structures in explaining the representation of all three groups of women; and Rule ( 1992) who found that multimember state legislative districts benefit both African-American and white women.
