Gendered Politicians

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 10:53 am Thu 15th February 2018

In a simple analysis; if a politician acts in a gendered way and seeks votes based on gender then you would expect them to represent their constituency in the same way?

As the Green’s female leader position is currently being contested it may be interesting to observe this contest as a starting point, although a cynical observation might be that two leaders simply attracts additional income for the party and as long as the male leader doesn’t conflict with the female’s point of view it is nothing more than a Feminist party targeting both funding and votes the best way visible to them.

No doubt you will find some degree of collective female perspective floating across all parties – probably the most significant during the recent election campaign (2017) was Tracey Martin from NZ First clearly stating that women including politicians across all political parties should work together.

The purpose of the post is to have a central point at which you can place what you consider important observations in respect of individual politicians gendered statements.
