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.
