Abstract:Max Weber presents a typology of ideal types of power---charismatic, traditional, and legal-rational. Men historically have been the basis for Weber's and other scholar's theories. Today, there are enough women in political positions to construct a typology on the effects of gender on power and authority. My dissertation suggests that the type of system through which women come to power determines the role of gender on access to power but that the exercise of legitimate authority remains upon cultural norms. My typology offers an explanation for the anomalies that arise for women seeking political power. The legal-rational system has been well studied. It is a non-gendered institution located in culturally determined eligibility pools. Once women fill the qualifications for participation in the eligibility pool, there is the possibility for political access. Women in traditional political systems come to power only in the absence of a male heir but do not exercise authority in their own right. The cultural expectation for women is this system is to marry and produce male heirs. The husband is the authority. Charisma demands that the leader exhibit extraordinary powers. There are, however, traditional leaders who have exercised political authority and there are charismatic women leaders. The eligibility pool for charismatic women is the traditional system. The charismatic relationship allows the woman in the traditional system to exercise authority. For women, there are two ideal sources of power---legal-rational and traditional. Legitimate authority, however, rests upon the support of law in the legal-rational system for both men and women. Legitimate authority in the traditional system is supported by the charismatic relationship between a leader and her followers. I focus on three modern-political women---Aung San Suu Kyi of Burma, Chandrika Kumaratunga of Sri Lanka, and Benazir Bhutto of Pakistan---whose circumstances present enough similarities to allow for the discovery of equivalencies of charisma through comparative political analysis.
