Abstract

This article provides a case study analysis of the provision of gender and political studies education in the UK. The article notes the lack of gender and politics units available to students at the undergraduate level and links this to the under representation of women within the discipline but also to the wider political and economic context. The article reflects upon the extent to which the study of gender and politics has been promoted within the UK, arguing that despite the key role played by national groups such as the Political Studies Association’s Women and Politics group, the wider discipline is yet to view gender as a core part of the curricula.
