Key words: world's cities, women's political participation, gender equality
Abstract: In the globalization process, the role of cities has increasingly drawn attention from scholars of various fields. Political participation has become one of the important indicators to assess gender equality and the healthy growth of the world's cities. In this paper, we will compare women's political participation in four cities, New York, London, Tokyo and Paris, and analyze three ways of promoting women's political participation through legislation, ranks of political parties and civil society's advocacy in order to advise how Beijing would benefit from these experiences.
