Media name/outlet BBC News Online Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 6/02/18 Description Voting behaviour expert Dr Rosalind Shorrocks, from the University of Manchester, says that one of the reasons behind the difference was that women were more religious than men, and also points to the way they were affected by government policies.
"The Conservative Party's post-war anti-rationing stance appealed particularly to housewives who were managing family budgets," she explains.
