using evidence from the political ambition module in class, what do you think is the most compelling theory as to why women and men have differing ambition levels and how could this difference affect public policy in at least three ways in the US? Give specific examples and incorporate at least six scholarly articles and/or books and two news articles into your paper. Refer to at least 3 of them in your presentation.

Finally, how would you solve or at least mitigate the gap? Give me at least 2 concrete solutions.
