Status of Women in the Profession

The committee on the status of women in the profession monitors the status of women in the profession at all levels, including faculty members and graduate students. It reports to the membership periodically on its findings, works to advance research on women as well as on issues of particular concern to women, and works closely with other groups like the women's caucus for political science to share information and ideas and to ensure fair and equal treatment of women throughout the profession.
