New Study Highlights Gender Disparities in US Economic and National Security Coverage Over the Last Decade 

A comprehensive, longitudinal study of gender bias against politicians in the United States by Aliya Andrich and Emese Domahidi, spanning 2010 to 2020 and analyzing over one million news articles from major media outlets, has revealed significant disparities. Using computational methods of text analysis, the authors found that women in high-level political positions receive less media attention than their male counterparts, particularly on economic and national security issues. Despite positive longitudinal shifts, the study underscores the persistent gender gap in media coverage and suggests that attention to high-profile, predominantly male politicians may inadvertently perpetuate societal gender biases.
