The Department of Political Science and College of Arts and Science are proud to host the 2nd conference on Gender and Politics.  The program highlights the program's "Gender and Politics" concentration for SLU's Masters of Arts in Political Science.  This program explores the social and political ramifications of gender in the U.S and World Politics.  Courses in the masters will cover issues in the law, electoral politics, race relations, international development, sustainability, and leadership.

The 1st Annual Gender and Politics Conference, held on May 4th, 2012, was a great success.  Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan served as the keynote speaker.  A conference highlight was a round table panel of black women elected officials from St. Louis.  Six academic panels, a graduate student poster session, and an author meets critic panel featuring Diana Carlin's book "Gender and the American Presidency: Nine Presidential Women and the Barriers They Faced" rounded out the conference schedule.  The event was attended by over 125 scholars, students, and public officials.  For conference photos and highlights, visit the Political Science Department's events page.
