Women's Leadership in Politics: Theory and Practice

This course explores the challenges and opportunities in women’s political participation in the U.S. and prepares women for effective political engagement. We begin by looking at the history of women's participation, move into understanding how the political process works, and end with practical preparation. Students hear from women who have worked in politics as candidates and electeds, campaign consultants, and staffers. This course affords students an opportunity to develop both a theoretical understanding of gender and politics and practical skills for their own participation.
