Does Partisanship Shape Women’s Experience in the District?

The Electoral Connection
  • Jocelyn Jones Evans


This book examines the partisan contours of women’s legislative behavior. Each chapter approaches the subject from a different perspective, including: the electoral circumstances of female Members within their district; the ideological nature of women’s voting behavior within the institution; and the character of women’s status and participation within the party organizations. In this section, we begin with the electoral connection to understand the different constituent pressures women face due to partisanship.
