The Politics of the gender gap: the social construction of political influence
Using election studies, media analysis, economics, history, sociology and policy studies, The Politics of the Gender Gap presents state-of-the-art empirical research on the emergence of women as a voting block. It reveals that although the gender gap is a social and political creation that is still ill-defined, its potential to influence politics is significant. The contributors explain the origins of the gender gap; its use by women's organizations, the media and political parties; and its implications for the election of women.
