A new analysis in Financial Times reveals that young women between the ages of 18-29 are far more liberal than their male counterparts. The gender gap among the young has never been wider.
The chart below shows that 18 to 29-year-old women today are a gigantic 40 percentage points more likely to describe themselves as liberal than are men of the same age. In other words, if, say, 65% of young men say that are conservative, only 25% of young women do. Finding a conservative young woman these days is like winning the Power Ball.
We’re not sure why this is happening and would love any explanations you readers can provide. But here’s one contributing factor: women are more likely to attend college than men these days. And we know that though colleges are exceptionally talented at indoctrinating students with a leftist ideology. It’s apparently working.
