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.” (with 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. My common-sense approach is outlined in this article in Cosmopolitan magazine on the possible #POTUS run of @amyklobuchar, and in these writings of mine: “For riled-up women…” and here, discussing the lessons the great women’s leader, Jane Addams, has to teach us. (Indeed, we follow in the footsteps of Addams, Ida B. Wells, and so many others. I am honored to be here, where they would be, too. To participate, click on the image below.)


I have been 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.
