“She's Out There: Essays by 35 Young Women Who Aspire to Lead the Nation: The Next Generation of Presidential Candidates” is the newest collection of essays by Amy Sewell, Heather Ogilvie, and Robert A. Ripps.
A recent press release noted: “Hailing from 20 states and diverse races and socioeconomic backgrounds, these women voice opinions from across the political spectrum. Their essays reveal what drives the political ambitions of a younger generation of American women - and reveals their vision for our country. Between the ages of 5 and 35, the writers touch on topics ranging from: resolving the Iraq War and reforming health and education policies to reducing poverty and crafting a sensible environmental policy.
"She's Out There!" offers readers fascinating and empowering facts about female leaders in politics - both past and present - including the 104 women who currently serve as governors, senators, congresswomen, and cabinet members. In addition, several women currently in office - including Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton, Mary Landrieu, and Kay Bailey Hutchison - offer their advice to young women hoping to follow in their footsteps.”
Published by Lifetime Media, the book will be available May 21st.
