This paper is focused on the gendered nature of politics where now gender has an impact on how people think, organize, or the information and knowledge they have in the world. The study of the role of especially women has proved to be quite an interesting research topic. The current political situation of the world and especially the United States involving specifically the female gender is made all the more impressive in that as recently as the 1920s women didn’t even have the right to vote. Besides voting, women were completely left out of the formal structures of the political scene. They were outsiders that could not hold elective office not even serving on juries (Ramirez, Soysal & Shanahan, 1997).
