Don't miss the latest facts and figures at Presidential Gender Watch. Here are some recent highlights:
According to a new report from the Center for Responsive Politics, nearly 50% of Hillary Clinton's individual contributions to date, totaling $17.2 million, have come from women, a far larger percentage than that of any of her male competitors. The candidate with the next largest female share of contributions is Ben Carson, for whom 37.5% of itemized contributions were from women donors.
Both women candidates in the 2016 recently released gender-focused web videos. With Buzzfeed, Carly Fiorina produced a video to show what might happen "If Men Were Treated Like Women In The Office." Hillary Clinton, responding to Senator Mitch McConnell's claims that she was "playing the gender card," released a web video to outline the "gender cards" that Republican candidates are playing against women.
NPR recently reported on a new paper in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science by Alexander Czopp, Aaron Kay and Sapna Cheryan. The authors show that positive stereotypes can have some positive effects, but when it comes to interpersonal and group interactions, the effects are predominantly negative. Their findings have implications for women candidates for office, especially at the executive level.
