Where we started...

In Fall 2017, Dr. Daniel Kreiss led an innovative class called the Washington Experience. The class aimed to give the students a crash course in politics and the current scene in Washington D.C. Dr. Kreiss and his colleague Dr. Adam Saffer put together a comprehensive dataset of all the campaign staffers from presidential elections since 2004.


What we did...

With this dataset, Dr. Kreiss and a group of 11 undergraduate students, one master's student and one PhD. student from the UNC School of Media and Journalism set out to investigate women's experience in political technology. This website is here to share our findings and keep the conversation going.
