Join us as Cindy Rosenthal, three-time City of Norman mayor, and scholar of women’s studies and political science presents Women in Politics:  What it Means for Policy and Leadership.  Rosenthal’s pursuit of political leadership serving as city councilor and mayor of Norman has earned her a rich perspective on this issue.  Her scholarly research covers a vast array of issues related to women in politics, from studying the gender gap in voting, how women have transformed Congress, and impacts women’s leadership has had on state legislatures.   In many ways, she has paved the way for other women leaders in Oklahoma both in her service and her teaching, reaching out and encouraging people to become active in politics.  As more and more Women become more involved in politics, does this have impacts on policy or on leadership?  Let’s join Cindy for this exciting and engaging discussion.

Cindy Simon Rosenthal is emeritus professor of political science and women and gender studies at the  University of Oklahoma.  The author of three books and over 50 articles and chapters on women in politics, she served as director of the Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center from 2004 to 2018.  She also served on the Norman City Council for 12 years, including three terms as mayor.
