One wonders, why, given the long history and diversity of the United States, are American leaders not drawn from a wider pool? This anthology interrogates this question from countering perspectives. Why doesn't America have a woman president? What role does the media play in shaping our perceptions of leaders? How does the media exclude potential leaders by propagating stereotypes based race, gender, religion, and class? Readers will gain insight into the unseen barriers and prejudices that have restricted the leadership of the country to a select few.
