Over the last nine presidential elections, however, women have consistently voted for Democratic presidential candidates at higher rates than men.

Most recently, in , there was a percentage-point gender gap: The size of the gender gap has fluctuated within a relatively narrow range over the past 36 years; on average, women have been 8 percentage points more likely than men to back the Democratic candidate in elections since According to a Pew Research Center survey conducted June before the Republican and Democratic conventions , there is a point gender gap in general election support for Clinton.

Race and Social Problems 6 4 , December Abstract Social and economic disadvantage — not only poverty, but a host of associated conditions — depresses student performance. Concentrating students with these disadvantages in racially and economically homogenous schools depresses it further.

After years of concern that girls were being shortchanged in male-dominated schools, especially in math and science, there has grown a rising chorus of voices worrying about whether boys are the ones in peril. Other authorities, such as Susan McGee Bailey, executive director of the Wellesley Centers for Women at Wellesley College and principal author of the AAUW report How Schools Shortchange Girls, reject such concerns and instead contend that ingrained sexism and gender roles continue to hamper K—12 schooling for both boys and girls.
