Item description for Pearls, Politics, and Power: How Women Can Win and Lead by Madeleine M. Kunin...

Pearls, Politics, and Power is a call to action for new political engagement and leadership from the women of America. Informed by conversations with elected women leaders from all levels, former three-term Vermont Governor and Ambassador to Switzerland Madeleine M. Kunin asks: What difference do women make? What is the worst part of politics, and what is the best part? What inspired these women to run, and how did they prepare themselves for public life? How did they raise money, protect their families' privacy, deal with criticism and attack ads, and work with the good old boys?

Kunin's core message is that America needs an infusion of new leadership to better address the major problems of our time. To see how women can achieve that goal, she combines her personal experience in politics; the lessons of past women's movements; the stories of young women today who have new ideas about their role in society; and interviews with a wide range of women in positions of power, looking for clues to their leadership, as well as the effects of gender stereotyping. She interviews Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, analyzes her campaign, and addresses the question: "Is the country ready?" Other interviewees include U.S. Representatives Loretta Sanchez, Linda Sanchez, Deborah Pryce, and Tammy Baldwin, and U.S. Senators Susan Collins, Amy Klobuchar, and Carol Moseley Braun, and Governors Kathleen Sibelius and Janet Napolitano.

The next generation of women will be inspired to lead by seeing women like Nancy Pelosi wielding the gavel, and seeing themselves reflected in the portraits in statehouses, courthouses, corporate and university boardrooms, and the White House. Pearls, Politics, and Power will help ensure that this inspiration is not soured or deflected, but channeled into successful candidacies by America's leaders of tomorrow.

What will it take for women to assume their rightful places in the political corridors of power?

Reviews - What do customers think about Pearls, Politics, and Power: How Women Can Win and Lead?

A must for any woman aspiring to gain anything from town council membership to a senate seat  Aug 10, 2008
The near success of Hillary Clinton almost nabbing the Democratic Nomination for 2008 sends a powerful message to women: they, too, can be successful in politics. "Pearls, Politics & Power: How Women Can Win and Lead" pushes women to be everything they can be in the world of politics. Written to inspire fifty percent of America's population to make up fifty percent of the government (a percentage that is unfortunately a far cry to the actual numbers of today's world), "Pearls Politics & Power" is a must for any woman aspiring to gain anything from town council membership to a senate seat, a governor's chair, or even the Oval Office.
Great Book  Jul 10, 2008
Great book, I learned about feminism, something that I was a little put off before I read this book. Although feminism, is appropriately mostly associated women with Anglo-Saxon women issues, Kunin who is Jewish, made it more culturally broad than most books. It's a good introductory feminism book for any person.

I am just about to graduate college, and have never been particularly interested in becoming a politician. Yet, her book finally made me consider it, and also possibly better, has made me encourage other women to stand up and consider the possibility too.

I loved the book, it would be a wonderful graduation gift, of course accompanied by pearls!
A Woman and truly a Lady  May 29, 2008
Gov. Kunin proves in this book that a woman in politics does not have to "storm the heavens" or crash through barriers - - but can (and she has) work up to as high a position politically as she may wish without ever giving up the endearing qualities that result in her being titled a true Lady, in every sense of the etiquette word.
