“YOU WERE PROFOUNDLY RADIANT.”
“The gift of a woman president” can be yours. I am so pleased that the audio version of Vote Her In is here.
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.
“ 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
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 everywhere is to shatter the glass ceiling everywhere, by electing women to executive political office. (Now, Chicago leads this way as it has elected a woman mayor.)
The #VoteHerIn podcast explores all this. I’m excited to co-produce this new series with @TwoBroadsTalkingPolitics: click this link to sign-up. Here is the link to the #VoteHerIn series.

The Daily Beast recommends“nine books to read to get ready for the pink wave” of 2019: Every Day Is Election Day is one.
“Our favorite author,” that would be yours’-truly, is here in a YWCA Facebook Live show. And, here is a talk I gave to a group of business leaders about the need for women to be in every c-suite. Here, the Chicago Sun-Times makes the case for Vote Her In. And, here, Crain’s Chicago Business interviews me on Mayor Lighfoot’s inauguration day about the necessity of securing a better future for every Chicago woman, girl, and her family.
I also speak about women’s leadership and power and wrote Every Day Is Election Day: A Woman’s Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House, a frank exposition on women’s importance at every decision making table.
