Why Women Run From Office - 2016 Kenderdine Lecture

The United States has never had a female president, women make up less than 20 percent of the U.S. Congress, and the numbers aren’t much better at the state and local level. The reason, according to conventional wisdom, is that female candidates face gender bias from the media and voters. But according to the largest-ever study of women running for congressional office in the U.S., that’s no longer true. The research argues that when more women run, more women will win.

Join keynote speaker Dr. Danny Hayes (Associate Professor of Political Science at George Washington University and Fellow at the Women & Politics Institute at American University) as he discusses this topic, followed by a talkback panel response by members of the local community led by Fran Rodriguez, President of the League of Women Voters of Lancaster County.
