WGS 423. ECCE: Women and Politics. 4 Hours.
Why are there so few women in elected positions within American Government, and how does their absence affect public policy? In this class we will consider the electoral experiences of women who run for office. We will also consider whether the women who are elected to public office behave differently, and what, if any, implications such a difference might have for public policy. Course Information: Same as PSC 423. This course fulfills an Engaged Citizenship Common Experience requirement at UIS in the area of U.S. Communities.
