In the latest episode of AEI’s Banter podcast, AEI research guru Jennifer Marsico sits down to talk about women in politics. Why aren’t there more women in political office? Do voters have a bias against women? Jen walks us through several recent studies, explores the history of the issue, and presents data from the two most recent national elections. We also explore if there is a common female agenda and if women tend to vote for other women.
