Using data collected during the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Dr. Friesen explores the intersectional nature of risk tolerance and its relation to participating in religion and politics. Risk and uncertainty generally lead women over men to pursue religion and avoid politics, but this is mainly based on the experiences of white Americans, who use religion and approach politics differently than their Black American counterparts.
