August 5, 2020 - Experts Suggest that Selecting a Woman is the “Least Biden Can Do”


CAWP Scholar Kelly Dittmar and CAWP Director Debbie Walsh publish an op-ed in USA Today that reflects on the attention paid to Biden’s selection of a vice-presidential nominee and warns, “We should take this moment to celebrate the woman nominee, not the act of nominating a woman.” The authors add that selecting a woman nominee is neither revolutionary nor an act of sacrifice for Biden’s presidential campaign. Instead, they argue that selecting a woman is overdue.
