Alan Rosenthal
When Women Lead, a study of integrative leadership, is solidly grounded in theory, nicely shaped by empirical method, and admirably informed by practical insight. It makes a unique contribution to the study of women and politics specifically and of legislatures more generally.
Jane Maroney

As an insight into the processes of managing, decision-making, and presentation, the book allows anyone who wishes to delve into the political realm to truly understand the variety of leadership styles of legislators.
