The Gender of Politics: How (And How Much) Will Women Influence Election 2000?

Campaign 1992 was dubbed “The Year of the Woman” because more female candidates ran that year than any other in U.S. history. In 1996, “Soccer Moms” grabbed headlines as the group that candidates needed to win. What role will women have in 2000? How will Election 2000 be remembered? Who is the “woman voter?” What issues does “she” care about? How will women affect the 2000 campaign?

A panel of experts, including Kellyanne Fitzpatrick, President, The Polling Company, Anna Greenberg, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Public Policy, Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government, Kelli M. Conlin, Executive Director, New York State affiliate of the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, Timothy F. Mooney, Vice President, Political Affairs,, and Mollyann Brodie, Ph.D., Vice President and Director for Public Opinion & Media Research, Kaiser Family Foundation, discussed Election 2000 predictions, “women’s issues,” and how women can become “informed” voters at an Emerging Issues in Reproductive Health Briefing on April 18, 2000.
