Abstract
Gender equality is a global crucial topic all the time. Nowadays, it is visible that women still suffer gender discrimination in various fields. It is necessary to study women’s contribution to society development. Using cross-country and panel regressions, I investigate whether gender gaps in political participation affect economic growth during the period 1991-2013 using data up to 30 countries in Asia. I update and specify the results of previous studies on the link between female political participation and economic development and concentrate the analysis on Asian panel. The result shows that in recent years, female political participation fosters economic growth in Asia.
