Abstract
Women are often portrayed in media as lower in facial prominence than men, resulting in evaluations of lower perceived competence. This study will examine which cultural-level factors (e.g. power distance, masculinity, individualism/collectivism, women’s economic participation) covary with gender bias in the facial prominence of politicians across seventeen countries worldwide.
