Book Signing with UChicago's Rebecca Sive
October 16th at Busboys and Poets
Join UChicago's Rebecca Sive, past lecturer and Academic Director of the Women in Public Leadership Executive Education Program, Harris School of Public Policy. The event, highlighting her book, Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President, will be held at at Busboys and Poets at 14th and V.
Vote Her In is an inspirational, graphic-driven guide explaining why we should elect the first Madam President in 2020 and how every woman can mobilize to get us there. Author Rebecca Sive convincingly demonstrates that the best strategy for creating a country of equal opportunity and justice for everyone is to shatter this glass ceiling and demonstrate to every American woman and girl who dreams of leadership that she really can be anyone and do anything.
As we approach the centennial of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, American women are making only incremental progress in winning political office. Yet, research proves that it is women officeholders who advocate for policies benefiting women and girls far more often than similarly situated men. In the wake of the Women’s Marches, #MeToo and #ShePersisted, Vote Her In makes the case: there is no better time to elect Madam President than now.
Harris School of Public Policy Dean Katherine Baicker has this to say about the book, and its author, who has taught courses on women and public and political leadership at the Harris School: “Sive takes her years of dedication to advancing women’s political careers and causes and turns them into a call to action—along with some of the practical tools needed for real and rapid progress.”
