June 9, 2022
In my latest piece for FiveThirtyEight, I wrote about the shifting trajectory of public opinion on abortion and how young people today, particularly young women, are notably more supportive of abortion rights than previous generations of young adults. There’s also a growing political rift between men and women. Young women today are much more liberal than young men. In fact, young women have become significantly more liberal over the past decade whereas the political identity of young men has remained largely unchanged over time.
