Iowa Gender Gap

Posted today in SLATE: “…the male voter is typically seen as the standard for the public at large, with women and other groups as viewed as mere special interests. (This is despite the fact that the majority of voters are women.) Men are representative; women are outliers…”

It’s 2012 & yet “Men are representative; women are outliers…” Oy!

But as Libby Copeland’s article clearly describes, the “gender gap” in the American electorate has been a valid source of discussion for decades now, & all politicians know to hone their messages accordingly.

So why do I still get such flack when I dare to suggest that men & women might have different film preferences?!?
