Women Also Know Stuff: Making Voices Heard (Worcester Polytechnic Institute)

New-to-me, from Worcester Polytechnic Institute: Women Also Know Stuff: Making Voices Heard. “The organization Women Also Know Stuff (WAKS) began last year as a nationwide effort to promote political scientists; the kind who just happen to be female. The group’s founders discovered an underrepresentation of women in political science panels (called ‘manels’ on the WAKS Twitter feed), syllabi, editorial boards, and the like. So they set about doing something about it: establishing a national online database of female political scientists, maintaining an active Twitter presence and moving the needle more toward female political science experts.”
