This chapter reviews existing research about the political behaviour of women of colour while arguing that women of colour are still largely invisible and thus experience continuing marginality in studies of American politics. Cohen suggests that future researchers should disaggregate the category of women of colour, broaden of the definition of the “political,” utilize research findings to help improve the lives of women of colour, and continue to develop basic knowledge on the political participation of women of colour.

Keywords:   marginality, political behaviour, political participation, women, women of colour
