Rebecca Gill (Women's Research Institute of Nevada and Political Science) and a team of political scientists from around the country, Nadia Brown (Purdue), Jennifer Merolla (University of California, Riverside), Melissa Michelson (Menlo College), Elizabeth Sharrow (University of Massachusetts Amherst), Patricia Stapleton (Worcester Polytechnic Institute), and Dara Strolovitch (Princeton)) were awarded a $25,000 grant from the American Political Science Association's 2018 special projects fund. This grant will fund the project #MeTooPoliSci: Addressing Gender Discrimination in Political Science. Part of this project is the #MeTooPoliSci pre-conference short course, which will take place at the 2018 annual meeting of the American Political Science Association in Boston in August. This daylong event will feature panels, roundtables, and a plenary session on helping to empower womyn and their allies to use their influence to combat sexual harassment and misconduct in the discipline.
