Public Policy Paper

The following is from your course syllabus:

As the new administration and the new members of Congress enter office, women’s advocates will begin to present our new elected and appointed officials with proposals and policy papers that explain how they can represent women and address women’s once they enter office. To better understand how women and their advocates participate in these policy debates, each student will create an effective, 10-page written, critical analysis of a public policy issue of their choice that is of concern to American women that draws on the existing research on women in American politics and public policy.

Final papers should be formatted like a real world public policy paper, which means they need to complete the following 5 tasks:

Identify a public policy issue that is of interest to women (or some subgroups of women)

Explain why the issue of interest to women (or some subgroups of women)

Explain why the issue is an example of an important public policy problem that policymakers need to solve

Provide 2-3 alternatives for how policymakers could address the issue

Make a final recommendation about which of the recommended alternatives is the most likely to help women and why
