Why don't more women run for office? Why are certain states more likely to have female candidates and representatives? Would strengthening political parties narrow the national gender gap? ""Where Women Run"" addresses these important questions through a rare and incisive look at how candidates are recruited. Drawing on surveys and carefully chosen case studies of party leaders and legislators in six states, political scientist Kira Sanbonmatsu analyzes the links between parties and representation. ""Where Women Run"" focuses a powerful lens on the mechanism by which parties' informal recruitment practices shape who runs - or doesn't run - for political office in America. ""Where Women Run"" will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as legislators, candidates, activists, interest groups, and anyone who cares about political representation in America.
