Every Day Is Election Day: A Woman’s Guide to Winning Any Office from the PTA to the White House

Rebecca Sive. Chicago Review (IPG, dist.), $17.95 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-61374-662-2
In her frank and practical first book, public affairs strategist Sive, former commissioner of the Illinois Human Rights Commission, provides a clear and persuasive roadmap to female political success, whether it manifests as a PTA election or political office. Breaking the process into four main stages—Every Day is Election Day, Take on The Big Boys, You Can Never Care Too Much and Confront, Co-opt and Control—the author lays out critical strategies, such as effective and specific goal-setting, creating a winning mental state, and compromising with perceived enemies. Offering the precedent-breaking strategies of Senators Mary Landrieu, Amy Klobuchar, and others, Sive holds out a helping hand to women in the political arena. She also strongly advocates to other women the importance of realizing their worth in every aspect of their lives. Sive’s facts-based treatise, which includes a foreword by FDR’s granddaughter, Anna Eleanor Roosevelt, provides a practical guide for any woman looking to break the political glass ceiling.
