The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has mapped the whole sky in temperature and polarization in five frequency bands between 20 and 100 GHz. In this talk we focus on the WMAP polarization measurements and what they tell us about both foreground emission and cosmology. We also briefly discuss the prospects for future polarization measurements.
