“Women in Politics is a book that inspires women, reminding them that their voice does matter.” –Mariel Hemingway, Actress and Author
“Hayashi’s lively look at the strivings and successes of women in the political realm offers portraits of those who are engaged in the gender equality struggle and a meaningful sharing of her own experience in rising above the pressures and prejudices of gender and race… In each chapter of Hayashi’s powerful treatise … she passionately appeals especially to female readers … the power that they have within themselves to speak and be heard, to run for office, and to activate needed changes in the systems that have the potential to improve conditions for all … Hayashi’s inspiring book is both an excellent look at an extraordinary woman and a call to action for others.” –RECOMMENDED by the US Review
