Facts & Figures

Don't miss the latest facts and figures at Presidential Gender Watch. Here are some recent highlights:
A HuffPost/MAKERS/YouGov poll finds that  56% of people (59% of women and 54% of men) think we'll have a female president in the next decade. See the full results for more data on perceptions of women's political representation.

New research from Dr. Cecilia Hyunjung Mo shows the average person found it easier to pair words like "president" and "executive" with male names and words like 'assistant' and "aide" with female names.

In an unscientific focus group about the potential for a woman president, young boys tell Jimmy Kimmel why they don't think a woman can be president...and then Hillary Clinton shows up to challenge those stereotypes.
