"Measuring Electoral Success: Gender and Intersectional Dynamics in Political Campaigns"
The electoral gains for women in the 2018 election were notable, but that numeric progress was not felt by all women nor did it yield gender parity in American politics. Beyond the numbers, measuring success in U.S. elections means considering the ways in which gender and intersectional dynamics that have created obstacles to women candidates are disrupted.
Reception and Book signing to follow.
