This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book on women in US politics, with key data from every primary and general election for House and Senate since 1956. At the dawn of the new millennium, only twenty-five percent of the United States' elected state legislators were female, only five states had female governors, and a mere fourteen percent of the members of Congress were women. Why has the integration of women into Congress been so slow? Why are there so many more Democratic women in Congress than Republican? Barbara Palmer and Dennis Simon tackle these important questions with tough analysis and data from 10 000 elections and 30 000 candidates from 1917 to the present day. They probe the real extent of the glass ceiling that is in place in America. This is an ideal book for all students who need a clear and uncompromising guide to women in US politics today.
