“In this country, everybody is supposed to be able to run for president, but that has never really been true.”
said by Shirley Chisholm, Member, US House of Representatives, 1972 candidate for POTUS
Now available for pre-order, forthcoming in October, 2018, Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President, is an inspirational, graphic-driven and practical guide that explains why we should elect Madam President in 2020, and how every woman can take part in achieving this success.
Vote Her In argues that best strategy for creating a country of equal opportunity and justice for everyone is to shatter this glass ceiling, demonstrating to every American woman and girl who dreams of leadership that she really can be anyone and do anything.
As we approach the centennial of American women’s suffrage, we are still making only incremental progress in winning political office, whether legislative or executive. Yet, research has shown that it is women office-holders who advocate for public policies benefiting women and girls far more often than their male peers. So, in the wake of the Women’s Marches of 2017 and 2018, #MeToo, #TimesUp, and #ShePersisted, Vote Her In convincingly makes the case that there is no better time to elect Madam President than now.
I also speak about women’s leadership and power in the public square and wrote Every Day Is Election Day: A Woman’s Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House, also a frank exposition on women’s power.
