Exploring How Women Shape Politics in the New Issue of Ms.

You won’t want to be without the Summer issue of Ms. As the fall election nears, we’re taking a close look at the intersection of gender and politics with a feminist perspective.


Our cover story–”Betting on the Gender Gap“–has everything you need to know about why women have the power to elect the next president, determine the make-up of Congress and state legislatures and drive the national agenda. We asked Eleanor Smeal, who wrote the definitive book on the gender gap—Why and How Women Will Elect the Next President—to share her predictions on the 2016 elections and reached out to reporters and pollsters to think about the media’s evolving coverage of how women shape elections.

That’s not all. In our issue out now, you’ll find our analysis of the latest Supreme Court decision on abortion and the latest on what women and men are thinking about the economy and workplace equality, abortion and health care, LGBT rights, sexual violence, the environment and more.

And if you act today, you’ll get the new issue of Ms. before the campaigns kick into high gear.
