Evident in every presidential election since 1980, this polling phenomenon reached a high of 11 percentage points in the 1996 election.

The contributors discuss the history, complexity, and ways of analyzing the gender gap- the gender gap in relation to partisanship- motherhood, ethnicity, and the impact of parental status on the gender gap- and the gender gap in races involving female candidates. Voting the Gender Gap analyzes trends in voting while probing how womens political empowerment and gender affect American politics and the electoral process.Contributors are Susan J.
