Afaemme attends workshop in Gender Differences in Issue Attention

Last monday december 3rd, staff from Afaemme attended an interesting seminar. The seminar was about gender equality, and gender issues. We realised that issue attention within politics were treated differently based on gender and on perception the issue resulted as to whether it was identified as “women’s issues”. Interestingly, gender differences decrease for “non-women issues”. Of course there are variables that may impact issue importance, however, it was interesting to see that as a female MP became more senior, the gender differences in issue attention decrease.
