Topic Summary: Riding the Pink Wave: Gender in the 2018 Midterm Elections
Summary: Following the 2016 election, political scientists began to examine how the results of the presidential election might shape political interest and involvement by Democratic and Republican men and women. What trends and patterns did they find? How have these findings corresponded with candidate entry and victory rates (so far) in the midterm elections? Are women successful and how do we know? This discussion will touch on candidate image, candidate messaging, campaign finance, and voter perceptions in 2018.
Speaker: Dr. Rhonda Wrzenski
, Associate Professor of Political Science and Pre-Law Advisor at Indiana University Southeast with the School of Social Sciences.
