Comparative Politics of Gender Inequality

Why is there still a gender wage gap? Does it matter that women make up only 22% of parliaments worldwide? Can political institutions and policies influence how men and women share child care? This course examines the causes and consequences of gender inequality in the workforce, political life, and the household. Focusing on advanced democracies, topics include women in business, political participation, gender quotas, child care and domestic work.
