Product description

Review

We learn and become inspired by example, and what better examples for girls than the brave and barrier-breaking women in Leading the Way: Women in Power? The women profiled here were once girls who not only dreamed big but went big. These women from different backgrounds, in different circumstances, chose to lead, and I hope the young readers of this book do the same!
--Former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano

Inspiring more young women to be politically active makes this book important to our future!
--U.S. Senator Tim Kaine

It is so important that we inspire young people to become active in politics. The fifty women in this book are groundbreaking role models for our kids.
--U.S. Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton

Focusing more on each woman's achievements and major areas of interest than party affiliation or political lean, the authors offer a good mix of players on state and local as well as national stages, with a conscious eye to diversity...younger activists and public servants in search of courageous, tough-minded role models will be spoiled for choice even before they get to the concluding list of 30 "more leaders to discover." Makes a strong case that where "she persisted," others really can follow.
--Kirkus Reviews
