Gender Sterotypes in Media Coverage of Female Gubernatorial Candidates
Despite living in a country historically dominated by men, women in the United States have made significant progress toward more equitable treatment. Women have particularly made significant strides in political participation, but they have yet to shed the images stereotypically associated with women in power. These stereotypes, often enforced by the media’s coverage of politics, have prevented any woman from achieving the ultimate political position of President of the United States. While other democracies have successfully elected a female head of state, Americans have yet to witness the emergence of a viable woman presidential nominee.
