The Committee on Gender Equity in Anthropology (CoGEA) monitors the status of gender equity in the discipline and the American Anthropological Association, advising the Executive Board and educating members. The Committee reports to the Executive Board. Members are elected from and by the AAA membership at large.

Since 1995, CoGEA (formerly the Committee on the Status of Women in Anthropology or COSWA), a standing committee of the AAA, has considered several new initiatives of interest to the membership. The initiatives include attention to sexual harassment, part-time employment, issues in academic and nonacademic employment, and issues of "productivity," assessment which is so important to promotion and tenure.
