__________________________
(Answer in seven sentences)
The interest of my research is women in politics; what may they face that men do

what societal factors in America are the main causational reasons for the low
number of women in the positions of parliament. More specifically is the media
today affecting women’s aspirations and future goals. Is society today empowering
women to hold positions of power or disparaging them. Additionally in what ways
are not only women but girls as well being discouraged from seeking positions of
power.
