Bachelor Thesis, 2016
55 Pages, Grade: 1,0

Abstract or Introduction

The USA remains one of very few powerful democratic nations that are yet to elect a female head of state. This BA thesis aims to deconstruct the idea of the modern USA as a "post gender society" and show that gender in reality still matters - in society just as in presidential politics. Kaisers analysis first of all, aims to illustrate the different layers the famous glass ceiling is made of - in American society in general and in presidential politics in specific. Furthermore it displays how these invisible barriers have affected Hillary Rodham Clinton as an individual woman on her rise to power. And finally it proposes to analyze Clinton's changing strategies from 2008 to 2016 to deal with gender as a variable in her efforts to become president.
