Politics

I am a student at the Devry Institute of Technology and am currently in the midst of writing my research paper for advanced composition. My topic, "Madam President? Why History and Society Won't Allow a Woman President" is about half way through, yet there are a few things I am lacking. Do you know of any sites, books or periodicals that have information about statistics on women under pressure, or women compared to their male counterparts in politics, or anything along those lines. I would be greatly appreciative of any help. - Justin

Thanks for your note to Feminist.com. To find statistics related specifically to women in politics--I suggest that you contact the National Women's Political Caucus. There is also the Center for the American Woman and Politics at Rutgers University. And for fear of sounding too self promoting, also check out an article I co-wrote called Why Not Elizabeth Dole? Good luck.
