Feminist political scientists have long emphasised the importance of gendered norms to political institutions. Yet gendered norms also shape and sustain everyday life and informal practices in ways which have significant implications for political life. The papers on this panel examine the ways in which gendered norms are constructed, reproduced and contested in political institutions, policy, public debate and women’s movement activism. Further, they seek to reframe the debate around gender and politics by drawing attention to everyday life. What is the relationship between individuals and political regimes? How are public and political spaces gendered? And how can feminist critiques of knowledge production influence political science?
