Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filling the gap in knowledge about women's political action committees (PACs), this useful book examines the attitudes, priorities, and motivations of individuals who contribute significant amounts of money to the political scene. This book sheds new light on gender, feminism, partisan politics, and campaign finance in an easily absorbed manner. Based on survey data as well as face-to-face interviews, this book shows how PACs have narrowed the gender gap in U.S. electoral politics. The three PACs examined are EMILY's List (supporting Democratic pro-choice women candidates); the WISH List (supporting Republican pro-choice women candidates); and the Susan B. Anthony List (supporting pro-life women candidates and pro-life men opposing pro-choice women candidates). For those in political professions, especially those interested in Women and Politics.
