Article of the Week
To Most People, All Male Lawmaking Bodies Are Seen As Less Legitimate
New research from Vanderbilt University finds that equal representation of men and women on a governmental body "confers institutional trust and acquiescence."  The researchers found that this effect occurred for issues specifically affecting women as well as other political issues. Further, they found that this did not change with the presence of a "token group representative."
