Publisher Description

"Over the last few years we've seen a remarkable surge of women running for office, and even better, winning. Running takes courage, passion, and commitment, but it also takes books like this. June and Kate have created a wonderful resource for women as they think about taking the leap."--Hillary Rodham Clinton Turn "can I do this?" into "yes, I can!" Join the growing wave of women leaders with Represent , an energetic, interactive, and inspiring step-by-step guide showing how to run for the approximately 500,000 elected offices in the US. Written with humor and honesty by writer, comedian, actress, and activist June Diane Raphael and Kate Black, former chief of staff at EMILY's list, Represent is structured around a 21-point document called "I'm Running for Office: The Checklist." Doubling as a workbook, Represent covers it all, from the nuts and bolts of where to run, fundraising, and filing deadlines, to issues like balancing family and campaigning, managing social media and how running for office can work in your real life. With infographics, profiles of women politicians, and wisdom and advice from women in office, this is a must-own for any woman thinking of joining the pink wave.

Review Quote

"Over the last few years we've seen a remarkable surge of women running for office, and even better, winning. Running takes courage, passion, and commitment, but it also takes books like this. June and Kate have created a wonderful resource for women as they think about taking the leap." --Hillary Rodham Clinton "Running for office is hard work. Too often, women--especially women of color--lack the resources and role models to help them figure out if, when, where, and how to run. Represent provides these women with a roadmap to leadership. It's an essential addition to our arsenal in the fight to give more women and other underrepresented communities a seat at the table (ideally at the head of the table!). If politics is the art of the possible, then it's time to redefine what's possible. Represent gets us one step closer." -- Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA) "When I announced, a powerful fellow in local politics sat me down and said, "A woman can never win this seat." I was determined to prove him wrong--and we did just that. Running for office will humble you, improve your sense of humor, and increase your love of humanity. What are you waiting for? Reading this book will inspire you to get out there and run--we need you!" -- Congresswoman Katie Hill (CA)
