Abstract

Despite the progress that women have made in their struggle for equality in both the workplace and in political life, there are substantial obstacles that women face in both arenas. Scholars of public opinion have investigated attitudes about women in work and public life as well as the changing nature of how women are perceived and evaluated.1 The Blair Center-Clinton School (BCCS) Poll, conducted by the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Culture and the Clinton School of Public Service, adds to the understanding of these attitudes.
