This paper analyses the level and features of women's local political participation in rural areas. The study assumes that territorial governance must include not only economic and management aspects, but also political participation, both directly and indirectly. Through a case study of six counties in the Catalan Pyrenees, combining quantitative and qualitative methodology, we analyse electoral data and identify supply and demand factors to establish which factors facilitate and which constrain the active involvement of rural women in local politics.
