ELECTORETTE PODCAST | EPISODE FIVE

WOMEN POLITICIANS & THE MEDIA

"If a male politician is in his 20’s and 30’s he’s an ambitious go-getter, who’s a rising star - no one asks “what about his kids, why isn’t he at home?” This is just one of the points of discussion you'll hear during my conversation with Dr. Teri Finneman, author and professor of journalism. We discuss her book "Press Portrayals of Women Politicians, 1870s–2000s" including the media coverage of women politicians including the 1st female presidential candidate (a.k.a. Mrs. Satan as she was referred to by the press), Sarah Palin and of course, Hillary Clinton.
