Now that Hillary Clinton has locked up the Democratic nomination for president, she is one step closer to breaking the “highest, hardest glass ceiling” in American politics. If she wins, would her presidency bring more women into political office in the United States? That’s very possible — even probable. At least, that’s what we can conclude from my new paper about the 50 countries where, since the 1950s, women have held the highest office, such as president or prime minister.
