CQ Press Advocates for Women in Politics
CQ Press published the book Why Don’t Women Rule the World?: Understanding Women’s Civic and Political Choices, which seeks “to encourage students’ political interest and ambition and close the gender gap along the way. The book integrates intersectionality throughout, taking into account global and diverse experiences and backgrounds.” It also offers Ambition Activities to boost women’s confidence in political environments by teaching them how to deal with sexist comments, prevent ideas from being misappropriated, practice authoritative speaking, and more.
Topics covered include the following:
- How individuals form opinions about gender issues
- When and where women candidates emerge (including insight into campaign finances)
- How the underrepresentation of women in politics affects policy
- A five-step action plan to begin ‘dismantling the patriarchy’
