Mona Lena Krook is Professor of Political Science and Chair of the Women and Politics Ph.D. Program at Rutgers University. Since 2015, she has collaborated with the National Democratic Institute on its #NotTheCost campaign to stop violence against women in politics.
Now that women are finally arriving in politics they are confronting new problems. This landmark volume maps different forms of silencing and brings them together in a powerful new framework for analyzing the many-sided nature of violence against women in politics. Global in reach, it will be a boon for scholars, practitioners, and activists alike. * Marian Sawer, School of Politics and International Relations, Australian National University * In Mona Lena Krook's skillful bridging of theory and practice, all have been heard: academics, researchers, activists, and importantly, political women themselves. Enough chat. If we don't take Krook's cue to end the backlash that political women endure, then politics won't be inclusive, responsive, or accountable, and barely democratic. * Sandra Pepera, Senior Associate and Director for Gender, Women and Democracy, National Democratic Institute *
