Men are Naturally Better Leaders? Canadians and Political Sexism
Presented by the University of Lethbridge Faculty Association, Dr. Melanee Thomas is an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Calgary. Her research focuses on the causes and consequences of gender-based political inequality in Canada and other post-industrial democracies, with a particular focus on political attitudes and behaviour, and policy feedback. She recenlty published an edited collection titled "Mothers and Others: Understanding the Impact of Family Life on Politics," and is working on an exploration of the effects of gender, stereotype threat, and psychological orientations to politics, as well as a project examining the role of electoral districts play in voter turnout, party competition, and representational diversity.
