Contributors: Heldman, Caroline; Conroy, Meredith; Ackerman, Alissa;
Abstract:

In order to understand the motivations for and implications of Hillary Clinton's historic run for the White House— and her subsequent defeat—the authors explore sexism and gender bias in U.S. political and social culture.


• Analyzes original data such as Twitter hashtags, exit polls, and other public opinion data

• Goes beyond women-in-politics research to consider gender as a barrier to political equality

• Describes the media's involvement in perpetuating gender stereotypes

• Considers rape culture as an important aspect of both the Trump campaign and the general election
