Seminar on Violence against Women in Politics
In this seminar, Mona Lena Krook, Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Women and Politics Ph.D. Program at Rutgers University, shared insights from her book Violence against Women in Politics (Oxford University Press, 2020). Drawing from insights in multiple disciplines, she argues that violence against women in politics is not simply a gendered extension of existing definitions of political violence–but rather a distinct form of harm to attack and undermine women as political actors.
