"The findings of It Still Takes A Candidate: Why Women Don't Run for Office fundamentally change our understanding of women's political engagement. The authors' groundbreaking research revolutionizes how we must approach closing the political gender gap. The work of Lawless and Fox is immeasurably important as we fight for gender equality in our government and encourage more women to 'take the plunge' and seek elected office. It Still Takes A Candidate provides a critical tool in changing the face of U.S. politics."
- Siobhan "Sam" Bennett, President/CEO of WCF (formerly Women's Campaign Fund)
It Still Takes A Candidate serves as the only systematic, nationwide empirical account of the manner in which gender affects political ambition. Jennifer L. Lawless and Richard L. Fox find that women, even in the highest tiers of professional accomplishment, are substantially less likely than men to demonstrate ambition to seek elective office.
