Just 20 percent of Republican women hope to see a female president in their lifetime

A new Pew study reveals that only 20 percent of Republican women want to see a female president within their lifetime.

When asked if they "personally hope" the United States will elect a female president in their lifetime, 20 percent of Republican women answered "yes," versus 69 percent of Democratic women and 45 percent of independent women.

As for the male respondents, 16 percent of Republican men hoped to see a female president within their lifetime, as did 46 percent of Democratic men and 32 percent of independent men.

Other highlights from the survey include the fact that women are more likely than men to see gender discrimination in modern society, and Republicans are more likely to believe America has achieved gender equality in the workplace. For the full survey results, head over to Pew.
