My research interest continues to focus upon women and public policy, generally. Specifically, I continue to consider the ways in which the government defines and responds to the challenges of sexual harassment and sexual assault. In studying policy issues that affect women, I use the theoretical approach of understanding many of these issues as boundary spanning problems. My interest in women in public policy has expanded to a new project looking at difference in usage of internet enabled technologies in policy making of male and female legislators. Finally, I am beginning a new project looking into the politics of gambling.
