Men are not the enemy, but they are the problem. Women are wildly underrepresented at every level of the US government: federal, state, and local. Research has shown that women in legislative and executive political positions are far more likely than men to commit to policies that benefit women and girls of all kinds, so after centuries of underrepresentation, it’s clear: our best bet for creating a system that is more fair, balanced, and just for everyone is electing our first Madam President. Donald Trump’s election didn’t mean defeat, and his policies targeting women have not silenced them. Instead, women across the country have been motivated to speak out louder than ever before. There is no more powerful example of this than the Women’s March of 2017—held just one day after Trump’s inauguration—which was a worldwide catalyst for ongoing change and a vehicle for systemic empowerment that hasn’t stopped since. Vote Her In is organized around the inspirational messages seen in protest signs carried at those record-breaking marches. Part One outlines the case for why we need to mobilize now, and Part Two provides a clear strategy for how to get there, with 13 tractable actions that women from all backgrounds can take to help get each other (or themselves) into executive political offices and work toward electing our first woman president in 2020. In Vote Her In, author Rebecca Sive has leveraged her decades of political experience to give practical guidance, not just to women seeking political office themselves, but to all women—regardless of their prior exposure to political outreach and activism—who have come together to take action in the wake of Trump’s election. This crucial book empowers every American man, woman, and girl who cares about our nation’s democratic future to join forces and harness their collective power in the run-up to 2020 and, at last, to form a more perfect union. It’s easy to feel angry, but much harder to do something about it. Sive shows us how.

?Informative and insightful.... The authors provide a compelling appraisal of the barriers that a woman US presidential candidate must confront and overcome in order to win nomination and election.? ?Sharon Z. Alter, William Rainey Harper College and Roosevelt University?In contrast to the typical, highly speculative ?madam president? discourse, this book offers concrete data and tools for assessing the changing accessibility of the Oval Office to women. A significant contribution, one that should find wide readership among scholars and frequent classroom adoption.? ?MaryAnne Borrelli, Connecticut CollegeFrom the political rumor mill to pop culture, all signs suggest that the United States is finally ready for a woman in the White House. But is the vision of an imminent Madam President truly in line with today?s political reality? Rethinking Madam President offers a critical assessment of the inroads made by female candidates into the previously male bastion of electoral success?exploring whether they actually apply to the presidency. The authors tackle a range of provocative issues: the conflation of the presidency with masculinity, particularly when it comes to security and military concerns; media coverage focusing, even today, on the novelty of a female candidate; public support for women that often evaporates in the voting booth; and more. Although Madam President is not an impossibility, they conclude, it would be a mistake to ignore the very significant hurdles that women still face on the path to the Oval Office.Lori Cox Han is professor of political science at Chapman University. Her publications include Women and American Politics and Governing from Center Stage.

A behind-the-scenes look at the organization that transformed Congress—and became a force for female empowerment. In 1985, aware of the near-total absence of women in Congress, Ellen Malcolm launched EMILY’s List, a powerhouse political organization that seeks to ignite change by getting women elected to office. The rest is history: Since then, EMILY’s List has helped elect 23 women senators, 12 governors, and 116 Democratic women to the House. When Women Win delivers stories of some of the toughest political contests of the past three decades, including the historic victory of Barbara Mikulski as the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right and Elizabeth Warren’s dramatic Senate win. It is both a page-turning political drama and an important look at the effects of women’s engagement in politics.

It has been said by one of the greatest of English writers on parliamentary law: "Whether these forms be in all cases the most rational or not is really not of so great importance. It is much more material that there should be a rule to go by, than what that rule is, that there may be a uniformity of proceeding in business, not subject to the caprice of the chairman, or captiousness of the members. It is very material that order, decency and regularity be preserved in a dignified public body." This work is the classic edition of Robert's Rules of Order. Originally published in 1875, Roberts Rules of Order is a manual of rules for deliberative assemblies and is often used in business, government and other governing bodies.
