This course is an introduction to women in politics around the globe, with particular emphasis on whether, and how, women advocate for other women while in office. We will look at examples of women currently in exec- utive office (such as Theresa May, prime minister of the UK, and Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany), and legislative office (such as our own congresswoman, Elise Stefanik).
