  • Berger Lecture - The Majority Minority: Why women are underrepresented in American political leadership and what difference it makes

    2018 Sydney Berger Lecture

    Dr. Marjorie HersheyThe Majority Minority: Why women are underrepresented in American political leadership and what difference it makes 
    Presenter: Marjorie Hershey, Professor Indiana University 
    Date: September 20, 2018
    Time: 5:00 p.m.
    Location: University Center, Carter Hall

    A majority of Americans are women, yet women are much more underrepresented in political office, relative to their proportion of the population, than are African-Americans and Hispanic or Latino Americans. Interestingly, when women run for office, they are at least as likely to win as men are. So what explains the under-representation of women in American politics? And how does that under-representation affect your life? If we elected more women to Congress, executive leadership and state legislatures, would we have different types of policies? A different political tone? Less partisanship - or more?

    Free and open to the public.
