The Women and Politics Specialist Group provides a focus for PSA members – both women and men - whose research is concerned with women or gender; and is also a resource for women in the PSA. The group has a commitment to encourage the presence and visibility of women in the PSA and the discipline, while combating sexism. 

The Women and Politics Group was awarded the PSA Specialist Group of the Year Prize in 2014 for raising awareness of the study of politics and increasing the 'impact' of the discipline as a whole.
