Andersen writes op-ed piece for e-International Relations

Andersen,-KristiProfessor Kristi Andersen wrote a recent op-ed piece, entitled "The Importance of Women in the 2012 U.S. Elections," where Andersen writes that 2012 might go down as the “Year of the Woman” in American politics, a year in which American women’s votes were decisive in Barack Obama’s second-term victory, some of the most publicized and divisive issues in the campaign involved women’s reproductive rights, and when the 113th Congress convened in early January of 2013, a record number of women were sworn into office. 01/16/13
