Women’s increasing presence in top political positions, including Presidencies, Prime Ministerships, Cabinet posts, and party leadership, raises new questions for political scientists regarding the relationship between gender and executive leadership. This panel tackles four of these related questions: How do women rise to power in (conservative) parties to begin with? How does the public evaluate female-led political parties? What impact does having a female leader have on women’s substantive representation? And finally, how can theories of leadership be gendered?
