The U.S. Consulate General in Hamburg and Zentrum GenderWissen cordially invite you to a lecture by Kelly Dittmar, Ph.D., Rutgers University–Camden, USA:
In 2016, Hillary Clinton became the first woman nominee for U.S. president, challenging men’s dominance in the nation’s highest office. How did Clinton’s candidacy influence the gendered dynamics of media coverage of the presidential race? Moreover, in what ways did the potential for a woman president disrupt established norms and expectations of presidential candidates, or expose the rigidity of gender stereotypes in presidential politics? Dr. Dittmar will discuss these questions in evaluating the good, bad, and ugly of gender and media in the 2016 presidential election, highlighting the ways in which the gender dialogue was elevated and illuminated. Included in this presentation will be a discussion of Presidential Gender Watch 2016, a project managed by Dr. Dittmar (and co-sponsored by the Center for American Women and Politics and the Barbara Lee Family Foundation) to track, analyze, and illuminate gender dynamics in the 2016 presidential race.
