Women and Caucusing

Hillary Clinton's speculation that the non-secret nature of voting-by-caucus was disproportionately bothersome to women seemed plausible to me, but Kate Sheppard points out that most 2004 caucus-goers were women so it's not clear that there's any empirical support for that view. Secret ballots are still preferable to what they do in Iowa, though, even if there isn't a distinct gender skew to the process.
