"In Pearls, Politics, and Power, Governor Kunin lays out the what, why, and wisdom of women's political involvement not only in the US but throughout the world. It is especially relevant today in light of Senator Clinton's presidential campaign and the forces impacting it because she is a woman. Interesting and informative, it is a must read for every woman who cares about having government make a difference for her children and grandchildren and is looking for a way to make that happen."--Geraldine A. Ferraro, former Member of Congress and 1984 Democratic Nominee for Vice President
"Madeleine Kunin's story is instructive and inspiring--a must read for those who dare to seek elective office. It is a powerful book, based on real experience."--Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., Senior Managing Director, Lazard Freres
"This book provides a rare insight of what it is like to run for office and win. Kunin listens to the voices of women who have been there--at the local, state, and national levels. She is inspirational, informative, and timely, calling for women to jump into the fray and make a difference for our country."--Ellen Malcolm, President, EMILY's List
"A natural storyteller, Kunin combines her personal journey in politics with the stories of dozens of female politicians. Writing with wisdom, intelligence and warmth, she provides a guide for women at all levels who might seek to enter public life while at the same time shedding light on the challenges facing Hillary Clinton as she strives to become the first female president. The timing of this excellent book could not be better."
--Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian and biographer
"Madeline Kunin had to imagine herself as a woman leader when those two words rarely came together. Now she teaches us from her experience, and helps us imagine the next leap into the future."--Gloria Steinem
