Running as a Woman – Gender and Power in American Politics by Glenna Matthews, Karen M. Paget and Linda Witt

 “If you have any interest in the past, present, and future of women in American politics, Running as a Woman is required reading” ~ Barbara Jordan, Professor of Political Values and Ethics, The University of Texas at Austin

“The political arena has many unsung heroines; their achievements just haven’t made it into the history books. Running as a Woman addresses this void- identifying these women, recognizing their achievements, examining them against the historical perspective of their times. Some of the attitudes they faced will make you laugh; slurs and insults they endured will make you mad; their achievements will, ultimately, make you cheer.” ~ Nancy Landon Kassbaum, U.S. Senator

“Female candidates have faced obstacles and expectations strikingly different from those confronting men. These are discussed in bold outline and splendid anecdotal detail in Running as a Woman... engrossing reading.” The New York Times
