A special Pathways to Politics conversation with Professor Rosie Campbell, Director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London, unpacking recent research on the impact of gender on democracy.

Rosie Campbell is professor of politics and director of the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership (GIWL) at King’s College London.

GIWL was founded by Julia Gillard in 2017 and brings together rigorous research practice and advocacy to break down the barriers to women becoming leaders while challenging the ideas of what leadership looks like.

Professor Campbell unpacks GIWL’s recent research “Women political leaders: the impact of gender on democracy”, which is based on an analysis of over 500 pieces of research into the impacts of women leaders in politics and public life. Women’s participation in politics, voting behaviour, gendered patterns of support for the radical right, and the politics of diversity and political recruitment.

She also discusses how covid-19 accelerated changes to our world and workplaces, especially for women, having confidence in your own expertise, the 2020 US election.
