FIIN Co-Director wins APSA Book Prize

Congratulations to FIIN Co-Director Mona Lena Krook (Washington University in St Louis) who has been awarded the 2010 Victoria Schuck Award by the American Political Science Association for her book Quotas for Women in Politics: Gender and Candidate Selection Reform Worldwide (Oxford University Press). The Victoria Schuck Award is given annually for the best book published on women and politics.

The award committee praised the book for being 'theoretically and methodologically innovative', stating that Quotas for Women in Politics 'constitutes a definitive contribution to the fields of women and politics, public policy, and comparative politics.'

Developed to honor Victoria Schuck's life-long commitment to women and politics, the Victoria Schuck Award recognizes and encourage research and publication in this field. Schuck took her Ph.D. in 1937 from Stanford University and played a leading role in opening doors for women in the profession. She was not only an outstanding mentor for women, but her service in senior administrative roles at Mt Holoyke College and Mount Vernon College opened doors for future generations of women leaders
