Going down to the wire and the day after, I was all about gender and the election. I’ve linked some of the pieces earlier, but I thought I’d do a quick round-up and then take a break from posting for the rest of day.
For Slate, I proposed that Mama Grizzlies under-performed because the inherent contradictions in their position are more than the public can take. They front-paged it at Slate!
At the Guardian, I analyzed the female vote. I don’t think women got more conservative this go-round. I just think that more liberal women voted less.
And if you want some election coverage, but want to think about other things, too, I really recommend my podcast this week. There’s some election analysis, sure, but I also interview Sara Marcus about her new book on Riot Grrrl, and I review the Maddow documentary on the assassination of Dr. Tiller.
What are you going to do now that the election is over? I’m going to finally settle in and read Freedom.
