From the Parade Supplement

How a male in the U.S. House of Representatives votes on bills involving women's safety and reproductive reights may depend on how many daughters he has. Ebonya Washinton, a Yale ecomomist, found that legislators with just girls - or more girls than noys- takes more liberal position on issues wush as aborition and access to birth control. This held for Republicans as well as Democrats

I did a bit of research and found a blog summary/editorial of the report at Mahablog - definately worth a read. (I think this will prompt some interesting conversation with Dear 'ole Dad and his daughters!)
