Our goal is to promote and publicize the work and expertise of scholars in political science who identify as women. Implicit and explicit gender biases mean that women are often underrepresented as experts in the academy and in media. Our searchable database helps academics and journalists identify and connect with women academics conducting research on a multitude of issues related to the study of politics. Use this database when writing syllabi; when planning conferences, panels, and speaker series; when citing research; when inviting essays and op-eds; and when identifying experts for articles. 

Currently there are 1958 experts listed on this website. 

If you are looking for an expert, visit the scholar search page to view scholar by broad research area, specific research keywords, name, university, location, and other attributes.

Our database features political scientists who identify as women. A list of websites representing women in other fields and professions can be found here.

If you are a scholar who would like to be included in our database, please visit our registration page. If you are a scholar who is already in our database and you would like to update your record, simply login and make any desired revisions to your profile. Please note: if this is your first time logging in to this new site, you will need to request a password reset (on the login page). A reset token will be emailed to the address on file.
