Rethinking Policy on Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Issues

In 2010, CSW initiated a new series of publications to address policy issues in our mission areas of gender, sexuality, and women's issues. CSW Policy Briefs comprise outstanding applied feminist scholarship by graduate students.

For the first set of briefs, we partnered with Michelle Johnson, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Welfare and a CSW Faculty Affiliate, on the development of a call for graduate student policy brief submissions in the area of “Food In/Security: Local, National, or Global Problems and Solutions.” Several students submitted briefs and three were selected for publication. In addition, Graduate Student Researchers working on CSW's "Women in Social Movements in Los Angeles, 1960-1999" project also prepared briefs.

For the second set of briefs, we put out a call for policy recommendations in the area of “LGBT Youth At Risk: Education, Health and Safety.” We were pleased to receive submissions from graduate students in both the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.

The third set of briefs focuses on "Women’s Reproductive Health Policy in California." For these briefs we partnered with Julie Elginer, a well-known Health Policy Advocate and a Teaching Associate for Master's-level courses at the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.

The fourth set, which will be published in 2015, focuses on "Women in the Informal Economy: Global Challenges, Local Solutions." For these briefs, we are partnering with Chris Tilly, Professor in the Department of Public Policy and Director of the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment.
