Navigating Boundaries: The Rhetoric of Women Governors


Marshall, Mayhead, and their contributors explore the discourse women governors use to negotiate political boundaires. The analysis, based on the study of five governors, suggests that women bring issues of caring, empowerment, family, and inclusivity to their office, thus resculpting the face of the governorship, restructuring the political landscape, and redefining women's roles.
