A new research by Prof. Sharrow, Rhodes, Nteta along with Prof. Greenle is published in the Washington Post

New research conducted by Elizabeth A. Sharrow, Jesse H. Rhodes, Tatishe M. Nteta, political science, and Jill Greenlee, from Brandeis University, finds that fathers whose first child is a daughter are more likely than fathers whose first child is a son to support female political candidates. They say this is particularly true when the candidate makes an explicit appeal to the fathers of daughters. They also found that voting patterns for mothers were the same no matter what the sex of the first child was. (Washington Post, 11/3/18)
