Finding Gender in Election 2016 (2017)

How did gender influence the 2016 presidential election? For Presidential Gender Watch 2016, the question extended well beyond the fact that for the first time, a major party nominated a woman as its presidential candidate. It even went beyond the majority-female electorate that chose the new commander-in-chief. Presidential Gender Watch’s new report highlights the answers to those questions.

Presidential Gender Watch 2016 was launched in 2015 as a joint project of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation and Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP) to track, analyze and illuminate gender dynamics in the 2016 presidential election.
