Title: Determinants and Consequences of Salary Negotiations by Male and Female MBA Graduates Author(s): Gerhart, Barry; Rynes, Sara Published: 1991 Journal Name: Journal of Applied Psychology (1991), Vol. 76, No. 2, pp. 256–262 Document available online at: http://psycnet.apa.org/journals/apl/76/2/256/
A record 1,078 women have won theirprimaries for state legislative seats in the 2012 cycle so far, according to a new analysis by the 2012 Project, a nonpartisan undertaking of Rutgers' Center for American Women and Politics. Those results, however, are for just 23 states and represent fewer than half of the state legislative seats up for election. A total of 44 states have 6,012 state legislative seats up for grabs in the 2012 cycle.
"We could still increase the numbers serving, up from today's 23.7 percent," said Mary Hughes, director of the 2012 Project, on women in state legislatures. "I see widely varying possibilities among the states. California is down 10 women nominees from 2010. In states with early focused efforts to recruit women, such as Illinois, there appear to be good results for women candidates. Illinois has a record-breaking 75 women candidates, up 9 versus 2010."
