When Women Run, Women Win

Rebecca Sive is a Huffington Post contributor, lecturer at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy, and the author of Every Day Is Election Day, a unique guide to success for every woman who seeks public leadership and political power. Her book has been called by Publishers Weekly “a clear and persuasive road map to female political success,” “the Lean In of the political world,” by Illinois attorney general Lisa Madigan, and “a really good blend of behind the scenes anecdotes with actionable lessons,” by Christie Hefner, executive chairman, Canyon Ranch Enterprises.

A public affairs strategist with deep experience as a government official, organizational leader and business executive, Rebecca speaks on strategies for women to become more powerful by:

  • building and maintaining an influential public presence,
  • developing a political network and profile,
  • creating a unique, issue-based personal brand and message,
  • making a positive and notable difference in women’s and girl’s lives, and
  • seeking public office.

In her inspirational, how-to speeches, and in Every Day Is Election Day, Rebecca shares the secrets of success and insider advice of women who have run, won, and now lead in the public square. She explains how to surmount public barriers; conquer private fears; seek leadership with humor, confidence, and no apologies; bankroll oneself; and get men to accept a take-charge personality.
