Explore the effects women have had on Congress!

Containing vital insights into the role women play in Congress, Women and Congress: Running, Winning, and Ruling is a unique look into the political standing of female candidates and congresswomen. Chapters written by noted political scientists consider the challenges of being a congresswoman in the male-dominated political arena, illustrate the fundamental and advanced techniques vital to winning an election, and show how congresswomen have been most effective once in office.

Women and Congress brings you thoughtful discussions of:
  • how campaign finance, speaking on the floor, introducing new legislation, and political action committees have contributed to the success of women politicians
  • the effect of media on election outcomes, including the media‚Äôs portrayal of women and the ways female candidates present themselves to the media
  • discrimination against women in media coverage
  • differences in the ways Democratic and Republican women view political issues
  • the political glass ceiling (how incumbency, gender, and strategy play a role in elections)
  • and much more!
