Over the past decades, gender and politics has become a vibrant and recognised international research field. Scholars have shown that gender is central to politics. Gendered equalities and inequalities are shaped and reproduced in political processes and institutions. In this article, we examine to what extent gender perspectives and insights are currently integrated in Dutch political science education. Based on a systematic analysis of the Bachelor programmes offered by the four Dutch political science departments, we demonstrate that gender is marginal in the foundational compulsory part of the curriculum. Additionally, students read very little scholarly work written by women. We argue that a gender perspective should be part of the analytical toolkit of anyone trained as a political scientist. Therefore, we collected suggestions of internationally renowned gender and politics scholars. This resulted in a comprehensive list with key concepts and readings that can be readily integrated in the core courses of political science on: comparative politics, international relations, methodology, political theory, and public policy.
