(p.186) Chapter 7 The Landscape for Women Candidates
When Does Gender Matter?

Kathleen Dolan

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter summarizes the findings on the impact of candidate sex and gender stereotypes on candidate evaluations, vote choice, and campaign decisions. The public holds mostly positive attitudes toward women candidates. Gender stereotypes are not a central influence on support for women. Instead, traditional influences like political party are most important, regardless of the sex of the candidates. This chapter also suggests areas for future research, such as examinations of woman-only races, partisan stereotypes, and the impact of women officeholders.

Keywords:   gender stereotypes, partisan stereotypes, woman-only races, women officeholders, women candidates
