The Canadian Political Science Association’s Women’s Caucus is an ‘informal’ group of women political scientists and graduate students who network, primarily, at the CPSA annual conference. There is no coordinator or board of directors. While it is an informal group, it has a rich history that dates back to the late 1970s. Back then – it was a very small group but in recent years, there have been, on average, 60-70 women attending the Women’s Caucus Dinner and the working lunch meeting of the caucus at the Canadian Political Science Association Meeting. (The CPSA is a member organization of the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Congress). In addition, there has been a separate theme field at the CPSA Annual Meeting devoted to Women and Politics for approximately the past 10 years. This year, the Women's Caucus dinner will be at New Town at 1476 Rue Crescent in Montreal on June 1st. Our thanks go to Kimberley Manning and Elizabeth Goodyear-Grant for organizing the dinner.
