Support for democracy by gender (20 S-S African countries)

The authors, García-Peñalosa & Konte (March 2013), conclude:
An alternative hypothesis is that women’s lower support for democracy comes from the fact that democratic transitions are often associated with civil conflict. If women have a higher cost of conflict than men, then they are less likely to support democracy. Our analysis seems to point in this direction.
