Professor Rachel Bernhard publishes in the British Journal Of Political Science

Professor Rachel Bernard recently published a new article, "Gender Stereotyping and the Electoral Success of Women Candidates: New Evidence from Local Elections in the United States" in the British Journal of Political Science.  

Abstract: "By analyzing returns from thousands of nonpartisan local elections, we test whether patterns of women's win rates relative to men's match expectations for how the electoral effects of gender stereotyping should vary by context. We find . . . .  women fare better in stereotype-congruent contexts and worse in incongruent contexts."
