In this country, everybody is supposed to be able to run for president, but that has never really been true.”

The Hon. Shirley Chisholm, Member, US House of Representatives, 1969-1983

Forthcoming, October 2018: 

Vote Her In is an inspirational, graphic-driven, and practical guide that explains why we should elect the first Madam President in 2020 and how every woman can mobilize and take specific actions to get us there.

Author Rebecca Sive convincingly demonstrates that the best strategy for creating a country of equal opportunity and justice for everyone is to shatter this glass ceiling and demonstrate to every American woman and girl who dreams of leadership that she really can be anyone and do anything.

As the nation approaches the centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, American women are still making only incremental progress in winning political office, whether legislative or executive. Yet, research has shown that it is women in public office who advocate for public policies that benefit women and girls far more often than similarly situated men. 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 strategies for women’s leadership and power in the public square. My career spans executive positions in business, government, philanthropy, and the not-for-profit sector where I have earned a reputation as a smart and inspirational women’s leadership strategist and writer, as well as speaker.
