Tóm tắt: Research shows that the presence of more female politicians can reduce gender gaps in political knowledge. Despite these findings, no study examines whether the role model effect applies to autocracies. This is an important oversight given the role political knowledge plays in increasing the use of non-electoral forms of accountability. To test whether female political role models increase knowledge in autocracies, this study uses unique survey data from Vietnam occurring before and after a leadership change. In the transition, all the top leaders changed from males to male except for legislative speaker, which transitioned from male to female. Results show that her selection increased name recognition for her position at a higher rate compared to men and that women were more likely to pay attention to legislative proceedings after her selection. These findings suggest that efforts to push gender equity in autocratic leadership positions may be useful.
