The Female Phenomenon in the Democratic Party of the United States in the Late XX - Early XXI Centuries
Political Science
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
In the modern world, it is generally agreed today that politics and women are incompatible. However, in the last twenty years, women have increasingly been active in the political arena, seeking independence and leadership. Thus, the question of whether women are needed in politics becomes urgent. For a better understanding, the position of a woman in the modern political space is considered on the example of two case studies - representatives of the US Democratic Party, Madeleine Albright and Hillary Clinton. The US Democratic Party represented by two political figures was not chosen by chance. The Democratic Party has a more understanding policy towards women, therefore it has their support. Embodying themselves with feminists, the two figures became the bearers of the hopes of female emancipation, particularly in the political sphere. Thus, the case data analysis helps to determine aspects of the formation of the woman political image.

First of all, the individual qualities and personality traits influencing the political behavior of the studied figures were analyzed. In addition, the motives of the political leaders, their values and interests, along with the relations and connections in which the subjects enter into the process of political activity were reviewed. This became useful in drawing up a political portrait of women and highlighting the characteristic signs of her political behavior.

Through the data obtained, it was revealed that a woman has to adopt men's habits and mime in politics.
