Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Abigail Adams asked her husband to Remember the Ladies, women could not vote or own property in America. Some seventy years later, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote, To vote is the most sacred act of citizenship, the government of the United States still did not treat women as equals, having yet to grant them the right to vote. But sixty-four years after that Geraldine Ferraro declared, We can do anything, and became the first American woma to run for vice president on a major party ticket. Today, surely our country is ready for a leader who, as Elizabeth Dole said, will call America to her better nature. This captivating book illuminates the bravery and tenacity of the women who have come before us. With an engaging narrative, fascinating quotes, and elegant illustrations, it not only shows how far women have come but also reveals the many unsung roles women have played in political history Step by step, these capable ladies have paved the way for our young leaders of tomorrow. They have enabled and empowered us to ask today: Well, why not the presidency?

Synopsis:

Catherine Thimmeshs inspiring look at the role of women in American politics—past, present, and future—is now available with updated sections on Hillary Rodham Clinton, Condoleezza Rice, and Nancy Pelosi. From the time our government was being formed, women have fought their way from behind the scenes to the center of power and decision making. So, why not a woman in the White House? Two thousand eight may be the year!
