So often while planning a conference, brainstorming a list of speakers, or searching for experts to cite or interview, it can be difficult to think of any political science scholars who aren’t men. We’ve all been there… you just know that a woman has got to be studying that topic… but who?

This site is intended to provide an  accessible database of political science scholars who identify as women.

This site was created and is maintained by political scientists and, as such, focuses on politics, policy, and government. (We’re certain that women know stuff in other fields too, though!)

Currently there are 1209 experts listed on this website.

If you are a scholar who would like to be listed as a scholar, please visit our signup page. If you are a scholar who was a part of the old website and no longer see yourself listed on the new website, please visit the FAQ page for an explanation of the various reasons why this may be the case.

If you are a scholar who is already in our database and you would like to update your record, you can do so here.

If you are looking for a scholar, you can browse scholars by research area or you can search for scholars.

You can learn about our mission here, and please visit our FAQ page if you have any questions. A list of websites representing women in other fields is here.
