520    Recent history suggests the United States is within reach 
       of its first woman president. This book examines the media
       experiences of women political pioneers who helped pave 
       the way to the breaking of the glass ceiling. It analyzes 
       newspaper treatment of four pioneering politicians between
       the 1870s and 2000s and explores how media discourse of 
       women politicians has and hasn't changed over 150 years. 
       The women featured are Victoria Woodhull, the first woman 
       to run for president; Jeannette Rankin, the first woman 
       elected to Congress; Margaret Chase Smith, the first woman
       to receive a presidential nomination at a major party's 
       convention; and Sarah Palin, the first Republican woman 
       vice presidential candidate. The social, political, and 
       journalistic cultures of each woman's era are also 
       explored to provide context for the women's media 
       coverage. The findings illustrate that the press has used 
       a variety of discursive strategies to delegitimize the 
       candidacies of women politicians throughout history, which
       might have contributed to negative voter attitudes toward 
       women in politics. Gendered stereotypes, gendered news 
       frames, and double binds utilized in news coverage served 
       to protect a male-dominated status quo. Yet a significant 
       finding in Palin's coverage indicates that gender bias in 
       news coverage is increasingly facing criticism, suggesting
       the tide may finally be turning in favor of more equalized
