Christina Wolbrecht and Women in Politics

Hillary Clinton could become the first female president of the United States, but for how long have women been trying to break that glass ceiling? What are the expectations and obstacles facing female politicians from Victoria Woodhull to Sarah Palin? And what about the sexism of Donald Trump?

In episode 14 of Campaign Context, Professor Christina Wolbrecht (University of Notre Dame) talks about women in politics. Wolbrecht is an expert on American politics, and gender in politics. She is the author of The Politics of Women’s Rights: Parties, Positions, and Changeand the co-author of the new Counting Women’s Ballots: Female Voters from Suffrage through the New Deal. Wolbrecht is also one of the creators of the expert directory blog #womenalsoknowstuff.
