This presentation is based on my personal experience during the presidential elections while in the United States and France. I will compare and discuss women’s involvement in political discussion in these two countries. I have encountered women from different paths of life, students, teachers, housewives and more. In my experience I have noticed a huge gap between the political interests of women in these two countries. In addition, my presentation will focus on the materials from my class Women and Politics at Bucknell, and my research for comparison between electoral and direct voting systems in France.
