Please join us for "Rhetoric and Reality: A Century of Votes for Women,” a lecture by Christina Wolbrecht, co-author with J. Kevin Corder of A Century of Votes for Women (Cambridge University Press).
Wolbrecht teaches political science at the University of Notre Dame and is director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy. She will explore popular misunderstandings about women voters over the past century and show that women do not comprise a single voting bloc. Rather, women voters are diverse in their interests and identities, especially in terms of race. How are assumptions and perceptions leading the public, press, and politicians to misunderstand women voters today? Reception to follow. Event concludes at 4 pm.
