Sociology (2013 cohort)
My thesis is entitled Generational change in gender gaps in political behaviour and attitudes: the roles of modernisation, secularisation, and socialisation. I focus on how ‘gender gaps’ between men and women in vote choice and attitudes differ between different generations in Britain and other European countries.
I argue that looking at aggregate-level gender differences between all men and all women hides large gender gaps within particular generations, and these gender gaps are related to processes of social change associated with modernisation and secularisation, as well as the socialisation experience of living through particular political contexts.
My general research interests are in political gender gaps, generations and political socialisation, and electoral politics.
I previously completed an MSc in Sociology at Oxford in 2013.
