Additional Information

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?

This wonderful lady is a personal friend of mine. I met her when I was working for IBM in Essex Junction, Vt. She was called a politician in the newspaper and I wrote a letter to the editor reminding them that she was a Statesman and she called me on the phone to thank me. I learned so much from her and I hope to be able to see her when I return to Grand Isle for the 4th of July, 2015.
I will be producing 4 movies next year and one will showcase the next President of the United States. Deborah J. Boyd
I love the title and the book as well. I first started reading this book in the library while the little ones were playing on the computers. I decided to purchase it because it has an itneresting story-telling style and outlines why women can and should lead. It has many anecdotes from females who lead but do not fit the stereotype of the overbearing woman who loses her female side in the process.
Great book. I've read this several times. In depth information on the characteristics of great women that have run for office and the challenges they faced on their journey to success in politics.
