Ilene Cooper deftly moves through more than a century of U.S. history in order to highlight the most influential and diverse group of female leaders who opened doors for women in politics as well as in the nation as a whole. Some women featured include Margaret Chase Smith (the first woman elected to the Senate), Patsy Mink (the first woman of colour to serve in the House) and many present-day powerhouses like Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. This book is illustrated with fun and lively illustrations from Elizabeth Baddley as well as archival photographs. It also includes an index, a chart of all the women who have served in Congress and appendices that define key terms and governmental procedures such as how laws are created and how political parties work.
