Abstract

Georgina Waylen argues that the reluctance of politicians with hypermasculine leadership traits – displayed in rhetoric, behaviour, and symbols – to take the pandemic seriously and implement or adhere to mitigation measures, contributed to incoherent policy-making, poor and confused communication, reducing levels of public trust, and contributing to high rates of infection and death.
