How Will He Balance the Roles of Dad and Politician?

 

That question is never asked of male politicians, is it?

 

The media doesn’t generally define a man by his appearance (haggard, hot, old, ugly, fat) or through his personal relationships (husband, father, no kids) – he’s just a human being. The focus is on his beliefs, his politics, his professional life, his integrity. His looks are irrelevant & his relationships are peripheral.

 

Which narrative would more strongly support a political candidate? Which narrative would lead people to take a person more seriously as a leader?

 

No wonder it’s so hard to get more women in politics. :/
