Leader of the Free World? The Future of American Women in Politics

Based on her 2010 book with coauthor Regina Lawrence, Hillary Clinton’s Race for the White House, Marylhurst University President Melody Rose will explain the three interlocking dynamics that are blocking the progression of women into the nation’s highest office. Based upon data from both the 2008 and 2016 presidential candidacies of Hillary Clinton, Rose examines gender norms, media protocols and election-specific contextual elements that prevented the ascendance of the first female president. Set against a global context of women’s rapid advancement, the case for full inclusion of American women into executive political office looks bleak. The presentation concludes with examination of new faces on the horizon, whose profiles and proficiencies might finally break the highest glass ceiling.

Marylhurst University’s series of free talks on issues of social justice continues Thursday, April 6, with Leader of the Free World? The Future of American Women in Politics presented by Melody Rose, president of Marylhurst.

“Everyone is invited to come, listen and participate in meaningful conversations to imagine a better future for us all,” says Dr. Rose.

Three of the scheduled talks are part of Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project.

The talk takes place at 6:30 p.m. at the Old Library in the BP John Administration Building at Marylhurst University.
