For my doctoral dissertation, I am working on women candidates to the U.S. Senate from 1978 to 2018, and in particular the decision-making process. I study the role of the political parties in the promotion of women's candidacies, the importance of gender in the decision to run for office and the incentives to run (such as the various protest movements that arise). I also study the obstacles that women face before entering the race and the support by PACs and political organizations such as EMILY's List or the National Organization for Women.
