Yes, Stephen Curry is right. Having a daughter does change men’s political outlooks — but only if she’s firstborn

New research done by Tatishe M. Nteta, Jesse H. Rhodes, and Elizabeth A. Sharrow, political science, with Jill Greenlee of Brandeis University, finds that men whose first child is a daughter tend to have more progressive views on gender policy issues than men whose first child is a boy. They also find women’s attitudes on these issues are not affected by whether their first child is a boy or girl. (Washington Post, 9/14/18)
