Towards the Good Profession: Improving the Status of Women in Political Science
European Journal of Politics and Gender
Although women have made considerable inroads into political science, they still comprise only about one third of the profession. Women political scientists are concentrated at lower ranks and less prestigious institutions, less likely to be published in the discipline's top journals, and cited less frequently than men. There are indicators that women's marginalisation is related to exclusion from predominantly male networks in the discipline; thus, I propose a research agenda to map the extent of women's marginalisation in political science. In turn, I hope that this body of knowledge will push political scientists to address the structural inequalities embedded in the field.
