were identified in Chapter  3 as potential features in the Australian and Canadian political systems that could militate against the centralising effects of Westminster-inspired systems. These factors and their application across and within the various case studies are compared across the chapters in the following section. The existence of women’s policy machinery The theoretical feminist literature proposes that given the fusion of the executive and legislative function in Westminster systems, feminist activists may be most successful if they target the state from
