Abstract/Description:
Although the existence of gender polarization in the United States House of Representatives is widely acknowledged, the purpose of this thesis was to examine why it exists. While is difficult to pinpoint a specific cause of this polarization, the study examines principles and traditions adopted by America from England during colonization, the role of women in America from 1776 to 2010, and case studies of individual women who have served in the United States House of Representatives, in an attempt to point out the multiple principles, institutions, and patterns of thought that keep women from running for - or getting elected to - the United States House of Representatives.
