I began my public career as a campus leader advocating for women’s reproductive health services. After graduation, I became a community organizer and moved to Chicago, where I built the Illinois Women’s Agenda, a statewide organizational coalition; the Midwest Women’s Center, one of the nation’s first women’s centers; and the Women’s Issues Network, which produced a national campaign for RU-486 featuring Cybill Shepherd.I have advised celebrities, business leaders, public officials, philanthropists, and social justice organizations and their leaders on women’s health, economic security, and human rights.

Here is an image from Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President that symbolizes my advocacy. Below it are images from my Every Day Is Election Day book tour.
