Of Mass and RI, Raimondo and Baker

Wendy Schiller comments on a potential reason why Gov. Gina Raimondo's approval rating is lower than Charlie Baker, the Republican governor of Massachusetts. One reason for the rating disparity could be because Raimondo is a woman, Schiller says, adding that it is harder for women to be seen as men’s equals in executive posts, such as mayor and governor, because voters don’t have a history of seeing women in those positions.
