This article explores the issue of women's representation in state institutions, in this ease the Indian parliament. It is based on interviews with fifteen women members of parliament, and examines: 1) the profile of women in parliament 2) access points to public life for these women, and 3) the role that they play in parliament. The article argues that cross-cutting loyalties, institutional incentives, and tenuous links with women's movements, limit the potential of women MPs in representing women's interests across a range of areas.
