Scope and Method of Study. A quantitative analysis of the relationship between gender neoliberal economic policies in the European Parliament.;Findings and Conclusions. By analyzing roll-call voting by gender from the European Union, two questions can be answered. First, have women as a group of legislators voted differently than their male counterparts on neoliberal policies in the European Parliament? Second, if there is a difference, has it been significant enough to alter the economic direction of Europe?;This study has shown that gender has little effect on voting habits, and it also shows that women do not consistently support or oppose neoliberal economic legislation.
