This collaborative project between Co-Principal Investigators Maria C. Escobar-Lemmon, Valerie J. Hoekstra, Alice J. Kang, Miki Caul Kittilson provides data and visualizations for where women have served on constitutional courts and supreme courts worldwide. Research has focused on women on high courts in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East from 1945 to 2013. The data gathered for the project will be publicly available for download.

A book entitled Reimagining the Judiciary: Women’s Representation on High Courts Worldwide is slated to be released in September 2021 with Oxford University Press.
