“Clinton’s campaign was covered much more seriously by the mainstream press than any of the women who came before her,” said Falk, associate program chair for the communications master’s degree at the Johns Hopkins University. “There wasn’t progress in every area, but I think because she was a front-runner, it was hard for the press to cast her as a typical woman or a token candidate.”
