Politics & Gender
In 2022, an all-Rutgers team was selected to edit Politics & Gender, the official journal of the Women, Gender, and Politics Section of the American Political Science Association. Mona Lena Krook will be lead editor, with Nikol G. Alexander-Floyd, Kelly Dittmar, Elena Gambino, Summer Lindsey, and Kira Sanbonmatsu serving as associate editors and Brit Anlar as book review assistant.
Our vision for the journal includes building its stature and influence by more actively recruiting manuscripts across all subfields of political science, especially from more junior scholars; promoting gender research taking an intersectional perspective; expanding our reach with international authors and audiences; and engaging more explicitly with practitioners and policy-makers.
