Bio

I am an Associate Professor of Politics at the University of Virginia. My current book project, When Rights Go Wrong, is a comparative study of culture and women's rights conflicts in Europe, Canada and South Africa. My first book, Women’s Rights in Democratizing States (Cambridge University Press, 2010), explains how democratic institutions obstruct advances in women’s rights. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Italy, the Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth College, and numerous institutions at the University of Virginia.
