Women and American Politics

Denise L. Baer

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews existing research about women's participation in political parties and women's organizations, including both groups that developed as part of the contemporary women's movement and more traditional groups. Baer suggests an agenda for future research that would help bridge the gap between the sub‐fields of women and politics and interest groups and parties, and that includes more attention to historical context and to issues of leadership, recruitment, and organizational culture.

Keywords:   interest groups, leadership, organizational culture, political parties, recruitment, women, women's movement, women's organizations
