Over the past two decades in the United States, research on women's movements has proliferated in women's studies, in sociology, and, to a much lesser extent, in political science. Focusing specifically on women's movements, this review considers current research within this emerging subfield of political science, particularly because political science and the subfield of women's movements research share a focus on the state and on comparative politics. This review assesses the contribution that scholarship of women's movements has made to empirical political science and to political movement theory. It concludes with a discussion of gender and political movements and suggests areas for future research.
