Tali Mendelberg Authors New York Times Op-Ed

Friday, Nov 9, 2012

Tali Mendelberg, Associate Professor of Politics and CSDP Faculty Associate, and her co-author, Christopher Karpowitz of BYU, authored an Op-Ed that appeared in the November 9th New York Times. Titled More Women But Not Nearly Enough, the piece describes Mendelberg and Karpowitz's work on the role of women in political decision-making groups. Though the Congress that convenes in January will include a record number of women, the op-ed notes that Mendelberg and Karpowitz's research shows that female lawmakers are likely to  reshape policies significantly only when women have true parity with men.
