Women In Politics
Alana Jeydel earned her Phd from American University. Her dissertation, published with Routledge Press, looked at the conditions under which the three waves of the women's movement gained access to and response from political elites in the US Congress and Presidency. She has also co-authored a text with Sarah Henderson, published with Oxford University Press, on women and politics from a comparative perspective. The book, Participation and Protest, looks at the impact that women have had on politics via social movements, revolutions, and political institutions, as well as the impact that politics has on women's lives via policies such as abortion, family leave, sexual harrassment, and pay. It concludes with chapters that look at issues of particular concern to women in the developing world, like female genital cutting, rape during war, honor killings, HIV, and education.
