Summary
"In contemporary politics and political theory, democracy is often associated with descriptive representation. Whether it goes under this name or such cognate labels as the "politics of presence, " "indicative" representation, or simply "group" representation, it has become commonplace to treat concern about the presence of a range of social groups in legislatures and other institutions as intrinsic to a commitment to democracy itself. Today, anxieties about a "democratic deficit" often stem from a complaint that the composition of political bodies does not reflect the important divisions within society at-large"--
