My Books

My writing is centered around mobilizing women to realize their full potential for leadership and to advocate for the equality of opportunity that makes such leadership possible for every woman. My recent books are described below.  I hope they inspire you to read further!

During the last decade, I have written three books about women and political power, which I’ve described for you below. All are available for purchase at Amazon and elsewhere. I’ve also written numerous opinion pieces for The Huffington Post, and elsewhere, which address current events and policy matters that focus on women’s lives, power and influence, and which tell inspirational stories of the change we can make together. The images below express my message to women and girls everywhere.

Every Day is Election Day

A Woman's Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House

by Rebecca Sive
A practical, inspirational guide for women who want to achieve political leadership and influence public policy
Vote-Wagon-Girl-Parade-USA
“Reading stories from the lives of successful female politicians is truly inspiring. Since the 1960s, women have been told they can do whatever they want, but they haven’t been given the practical knowledge to back it up. Every Day Is Election Day is a societal road map actually showing young women how they can achieve their goals in a culture that still views them as inferior, and for young, opinionated women who long to make a difference in the world, it’s long overdue.”
The Stranger
"A clear and persuasive roadmap to female political success."
Publishers Weekly
"Every Day Is Election Day is a valuable guide for a new generation of women leaders. It belongs on the bookshelf of every aspiring leader, from future school-board members to future presidents."

Immediate Past President, NARAL Pro-Choice America
