It then examines the early studies on the analysis of the lack of women in the policy-making process. The next section explains the broader context and process of policy making and how political goals or interests that come from different feminist movements manage in the policy-making process. The article also discusses the genderedness of policy making, gendered bias, and recent developments in research on gender and gender equality.

Keywords: Policy making, feminist policy studies, political goals, feminist movements, genderedness, gendered bias, gender equality
