It was an honor to be featured on The Daily Gist, the Crain’s Chicago Business podcast, on inauguration day for Lori Lightfoot, the first African-American woman mayor of Chicago. Here, I discuss the confluence of race, gender, and economics. Further, CHICAGO magazine shares the case for Vote Her In here.

Also, I’m pleased to share the news that I am now represented by Anderson Luba-Lucas for my speaking. Annette Luba-Lucas, Managing Partner, is the contact. Visit the site here.

“It’s imperative that we have more women in political office at every level. Women have proven they want to get involved in this fight, as evidenced by the incredible organizing we’ve seen in the past few years, but too many don’t have the tools to do so. That is why I am so excited to be a part of an event featuring Rebecca, acclaimed author of Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President, an impressive strategic guide for all women who want to be a part of breaking the glass ceiling.” Jan Schakowsky, Member of Congress

“We love learning from you.”


Glowingly reviewed by the Chicago Tribune, Vote Her In 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 that success and benefit from it.


Couldn’t have said it better myself: according to WGN Radio, the Steve Cochran show, “we’re ready to elect our first female president.”

Vote Her In also argues that the best strategy for creating equal opportunity is to shatter the glass ceiling everywhere, by electing women to executive office. (Chicago leads this way among big American cities, now that it has elected a woman mayor.)
