From the time our government was being formed, women have fought their way from behind the scenes to the center of power and decision making. Why not a woman in the White House? This book explores the role of women in American politics—past, present and future—and is now available with updated sections on Hillary Rodham Clinton, Condoleezza Rice and Nancy Pelosi.
