In this episode we talk with Laura Stephenson from the University of Western Ontario about her research into how the structures of electoral systems can shape support for female political candidates. She co-authored “Votes for Women: Electoral Systems and Support for Female Candidates” with Sona N. Golder, Karine Van der Straeten, André Blais, Damien Bol, Philipp Harfst, and Jean-Francois Laslier. The article was published in the March 2017 issue of Politics & Gender.
