      Yes, Agenda Trumps Gender--But Women Leaders Still Matter

      Last weekend, feminist activist Gloria Steinem flippantly told Bill Maher that young, liberal women are flocking to the Sanders campaign because "the boys are with Bernie." Leaving aside that Steinem was joking (if inartfully), or that Maher had kicked off the interview by complimenting her looks and pawing her belt, the flap points at a fundamental reality about gender in politics that we prefer to ignore: When women say they want to see more women leaders in general—or a woman president in their lifetimes in particular—it's judged negatively, as tokenistic, self-serving, or both. When women say they ...
