This paper investigates the consequences of electing a female leader for fiscal and service outcomes. A dataset of districts in Indonesia with close election results between male and female mayoral candidates from 2005 to 2017 is used. This study employs a randomisation-based inference in regression discontinuity design to deal with non-random assignment of female leadership.
