About Us

Two Women Talking at the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy.

The Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy is committed to advancing women's participation in public life. Recognizing the talent and potential of women from every community, and guided by the urban mission of an intellectually vibrant and diverse university in the heart of Boston, we seek to expand the involvement of women in politics and policies that affect them, their families, and their communities.

The center’s Leading Women Speaker and Film Series featured an interactive panel on how women access and utilize political leadership at the local and state levels in the Commonwealth. Sheneal Parker, educator and former Boston City Council candidate, discussed how various types of support can make a difference for women seeking elective office.
