Exploring viewer reactions to media coverage of female politicians

Joanna Everitt, WAPPP Fellow, University of New Brunswick

The first is based on a paper I will be presenting at the ECPR conference in early September titled “Exploring viewer reactions to media coverage of female politicians”. This paper explores voters’ responses to non-verbal cues provided by politicians and often included in media coverage. Past research on women and politics has found that in its coverage the media has tended to focus disproportionately on the assertive behavior and emotional displays of female candidates, yet little work has explored the implications of this coverage voters’ impressions of these political figures despite its potential to evoke or challenge stereotypes of women and/or politicians. This paper begins to unravel some of the impact that these non-verbal cues may have on voters’ evaluations of politicians and in particular female candidates.

Lunch will be provided.

An RSVP is not required as this is an open event.
