Pateman’s point of view is rooted in a realistic point of view, enquiring into and speculating approximately kinds of participation over and above the ‘traditional’ exclusions by which consultant structures were variously developed through the years. Her paintings pushes challenging on theorists and politicians who make effortless assumptions approximately apathy and public opinion, who bracket off the office and the house, and who see politics purely in partisan task, voter behaviour and governmental policy.

Pateman’s occupation achievements in democratic and feminist concept are introduced productively to endure on debates that will another way happen in additional restricted, and not more provocative, educational and political contexts.
