Overview

"Women belong in all places where decisions are being made."

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's words reflect a reality that has plagued the United States for centuries: We have work to do when it comes to gender-political parity.

Still, trailblazing women in government have laid the groundwork for other women to follow in their footsteps, one inspirational example at a time.

In Women in Politics, award-winning author and healthcare leader Mary Chung Hayashi offers a riveting exploration of the strides made by women in government. This essential, contemporary analysis bridges the gap between past and present, blending Mary's personal journey as an Asian American immigrant and former California State Assemblymember with the inspiring stories of trailblazing women in political leadership.

Featuring interviews and insightful discussions, Mary brings to life the trials and triumphs of these women, showcasing their invaluable contributions to political landscapes and the transformative power of their perseverance. Her work sheds light on the ongoing struggles for

gender-political parity and serves as a call to action: we must actively participate in shaping our democracy. Women in Politics is not just a book; it's a tribute to women's political journey and a compass guiding us all toward a future of inclusive leadership and a truly representative democracy.
