Danny Hayes, associate professor of political science, co-authored this book which offers a unified argument for understanding the role that gender plays in contemporary congressional elections. The book argues that the declining novelty of women in politics, coupled with the polarization of the Republican and Democratic parties, has left little space for the sex of a candidate to influence modern campaigns.
