Journal of Women, Politics & Policy

Edited by IWPR President, Dr. Heidi Hartmann, the Journal of Women, Politics & Policy is aimed at developing and disseminating new research on politics and policy of special interest to women.

The Journal of Women, Politics & Policy explores women’s roles in the political process—as voters, activists, leaders in interest groups and political parties, and office holders in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government, including the increasingly relevant international bodies such as the European Union and the World Trade Organization. It examines the impact of public policies on women’s lives,examining areas such as tax and budget issues, poverty reduction and income security, education and employment, care giving, and health and human rights, including violence, safety, and reproductive rights. This multidisciplinary, international journal presents the work of social scientists—including political scientists, sociologists, economists, and public policy specialists—who study the world through a gendered lens and uncover how gender functions in the political and policy arenas. Throughout, the journal places a special emphasis on the intersection of gender, race/ethnicity, class, and other dimensions of women’s experiences.
