In America, women are the clear majority of the electorate and the clear minority of elected officials overall. Niven finds that one important reason women hold a minority of state legislative seats is that party leaders are biased against women. This bias, rooted in the outgroup effect, encourages the predominantly male party leadership to prefer candidates in their own image while they discount the merits of potential women candidates. This book addresses this issue and offers suggestions for change.
