Recent News & Policy Updates

Joined by Clinton In Scranton, Biden Calls Out Trump For Already Making America Less Safe
Joined by Hillary Clinton in Scranton on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden called out Donald Trump for already making America less safe.  Biden pointed to Trump’s dismissal of our European allies, his comments on Ukraine, his praise for Saddam Hussein, his support of torture, his slander of the Muslim parents of a Gold Star family, and his dangerously irresponsible lies about President Obama and ISIL to emphasize the security dangers of a Trump presidency.

Former GOP Treasurer of the United States Endorses Hillary Clinton
“I have disagreed with and criticized Hillary Clinton’s positions, but I have come to the conclusion that she would be a far better president than the Republican candidate could ever be. She understands that words spoken from the White House have consequences, that sarcasm is not a strategy when dealing with delicate world situations, that our friends and foes listen to every word spoken by our president and react accordingly."

When Women Win, Men Win, Too

WHEN a woman breaks a glass ceiling and becomes the presidential nominee of a major political party, what should men think?

Should men applaud that another barrier has fallen so that our world is more fair and equitable? Or should we fret that when women win, we lose — that soon we’ll have to give up grunting and football games for putting down toilet seats and talking about our “feelings”?

The Democratic National Convention this past week was one long celebration of XX chromosomes and the emancipation of women. A spine-tingling moment came when 102-year-old Geraldine “Jerry” Emmett, born before women could vote in federal elections, announced Arizona’s votes for Hillary Clinton — and then cried.

Yet Democratic strategists also worry, rightly I think, that the giddy enthusiasm for gender progress may turn off men. Already, Donald Trump has a huge lead among white men with no college degree, and that’s the reason the overall polls are close.

So let me try to make the case that when women win, we men win, too.

Put aside your feelings about Hillary Clinton: I understand that many Americans distrust her and would welcome a woman in the White House if it were someone else. But whatever one thinks of Clinton, her nomination is a milestone, and a lesson of history is that when women advance, humanity advances.

Analysis from Presidential Gender Watch

She's the nominee!

When Ceilings Break, Walls Still Stand
Kelly Dittmar reflects on the work yet to be done to bring more women into public office at all levels, even as the first woman to secure a major party presidential nomination moves into her general election campaign. Read her thoughts here.
Was this Week's Roll Call Sexist?
Kathleen Dolan notes the difficulty in deciding how sexism is measured or defined in political campaigns. She proposes that the differences in how Clinton and Sanders handled their presidential primary defeats and procedural roll call votes at their respective party conventions may be evidence of gendered standards. Read her thoughts here.

Men, Women and the Gender Gap: Where Trump and Clinton Stand
What do polls tell us about how voters are breaking down by gender? Pre-convention analysis from Kelly Dittmar is here
