University of Tennessee
Baker Center - Toyota Auditorium

A growing number of women hold political office here in the United States and other countries. Yet women remain woefully underrepresented in most political institutions. Students, scholars, and other members of the university community are increasingly engaged in scholarship and study that focuses on women’s role in politics, policymaking, and positions of leadership generally.

The Department of Political Science is pleased to host a conference to exchange ideas, promote public discussion and civic education, and strengthen ongoing research about women in politics.

Join us for a roundtable discussion and Q&A with scholars from UT and other universities.
