The Changing Face of Representation: The Gender of U.S. Senators and Constituent CommunicationsKim L. Fridkin and Patrick J. Kenney 2014
The authors conclude that gender role expectations and stereotypes do indeed constrain representational and campaign messages and influence news coverage of both candidates and elected senators. Further, while citizens appear to be less influenced by entrenched stereotypes, they pay more attention to female senators' messages and become more knowledgeable about them, in comparison to male senators.
