Quoted: Deborah Jordan Brooks on Women in Politics

“The growing presence of female leaders in politics is likely to inspire, encourage, and energize potential female political leaders. That, in its own right, is cause for optimism,” says Dartmouth’s Deborah Jordan Brooks in He Runs, She Runs, her recent book on gender stereotypes in politics. She’s quoted in a New Republic story about sexism in politics, both on and off the campaign trail.

Brooks is an associate professor of government.
