Abstract: Though important studies examine how spouses socialize each other into politics, the implications for gaps between women and men in knowledge, participation, and vote choice remain unaddressed. In opposite-sex couples, conversation might reduce inequalities as spouses teach and mobilize each other. However, it could exacerbate inequalities when gender roles are highly distinct, or if women voluntarily suppress distinctive views. Analysis of 22 elections in 17 countries shows that when women’s labor force participation rises and gender norms are more egalitarian, both men and women perceive their partners as better informed, while gaps in perceived knowledge narrow. In more egalitarian societies, women and men are more likely to learn from their spouses and to mobilize each other to vote, yet they are less likely to support the same candidate when they disagree politically. At the individual level, women’s education increases their political independence, but not their husbands’ perceptions of their contributions.
