Gender and the American Presidency : Nine Presidential Women and the Barriers They Faced Hardback
Part of the Lexington Studies in Political Communication series
Gender and the American Presidency: Nine Presidential Women and the Barriers They Faced, by Theodore F.
Sheckels, Nichola D. Gutgold, and Diana Bartelli Carlin, is a book that includes interviews with several of the subjects, inviting not only the reader, but the women themselves to consider why they have been dismissed as presidential contenders.
Gender and media scholars as well as the general public will find the barriers of communication style, geography, stereotyping, and more, both frustrating and fascinating as the US attempts to catch up with most of the world where women are routinely elected presidents and prime ministers.
