This book should be required reading for young people, perhaps girls in particular, as the need is there to engage the next generation in the political process. This title includes 44 profiles of women, mostly from the U.S., with a few from around the world. Some of these women’s views are aligned with mine, while others are not. Perhaps this is good as the book can be used as a basis for discussion.
Some of the Americans included are Stacey Abrams, Dianne Feinstein, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Susan Collins and Betsy DeVos. Also, for example, internationally, there is an entry on Jacinda Ardern from New Zealand.
For each woman there are sections on topics including years in political office, positions held, a life story, a what’s on her agenda section and more. Each woman’s entry is presented with a lot of detail.
I like this title and feel that it should be part of school and home libraries. Readers will know more about those who represent them after spending time with this book.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
