When I began writing about women, politics, and power for The Huffington Post, I adopted the Twitter handle #GirlPolitics. Then, I wrote Every Day Is Election Day: A Woman’s Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House,  “a political book every woman should read.” (Using the lovely promo code, SheRuns, find special pricing here. For group sales, write here.)

I write and speak about strategies for women’s leadership and power in the public square. Perhaps, my approach is best summed-up in this piece I wrote to kick-off 2017: “For riled-up women…”  or in this one discussing the lessons a great leader, Jane Addams, has to teach us, written for a wonderful (and scholarly!) journal.

I am a lecturer at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy Studies, where I was the founding Academic and Program Director for: Women in Public Leadership. 

In sum – everywhere I can – I am #GirlPolitics, a fierce and devoted advocate for women’s full participation and leadership in every sphere of public life. Below is a clip in which I talk about my approach. Other clips are elsewhere on this site, along with samples of my writing, my bio, and anything else I thought pertinent!

Do be in-touch, whenever you would like.
