After Words: Michele Swers, "Women in the Club: Gender and Policy Making in the Senate," hosted by Emily Pierce, Roll Call

About the Program

Professor Swers examines the impact of gender difference in the Senate on the bills that are brought to the floor and the laws that pass.  She also argues that the effects of gender differences go beyond policy preferences and extend to amplifying the partisan divide in Congress.  She discusses her research with the Deputy Editor of Roll Call, Emily Pierce.
