In research on the related genre of Parliamentary debates in the UK House of Commons, Shaw (2000; forthcoming) found that women MPs in two data samples, one from 1998 to 2001 and one from 2009 to 2011, very rarely made illegal challenges such as interrupting a speaker from a sitting position. Basing her argument on an ethnographic description of the Westminster Parliament’s established norms and practices, Shaw suggests that the women MPs’ status as outsiders (they are a minority in an institution which excluded them for centuries) positions them as ‘interlopers’ (Eckert 1998), and that this leads them to pay meticulous attention to the rules, as a way of proving their ‘worthiness’ to belong.
