No matter where you live or who you hope to represent, the experience of running for office is different if you are a woman. MacKendrick believes the time for women in political leadership is now. Her insider's guide is written for young women interested in running for office. She shares stories of women role models, as well as a 'playbook' with all the tools and resources needed to get a campaign off the ground. -- adapted from jacket
