About This Book
There are stories of great success across history for women's rights, of risks and rewards for following a heart's true passion, and of grand shifts occurring in government, all because of a woman's voice and strength to speak up.
In The Marching Women: Inspiring Stories from Young Women in Public Policy, you'll learn about some of the young women who have made a difference in their communities and the ways in which you, too, can create positive change. These inspiring young women include:
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest member ever elected to the House of Representatives, who used social media to overthrow the incumbent in her district
- Pooja Tanjore, the former Virginia State Director of Rise to Run, whose main goal is to get more young women involved in politics
- Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish activist who has forced climate change to become a worldwide policy priority
The Marching Women speaks to all generations of women and explores ways to get our younger generations more actively involved in politics so that our future is in good hands.
