Madam President: The Extraordinary, True (and Evolving) Story of Women in Politics by Catherine Thimmesh. When Abigail Adams asked her husband to “Remember the Ladies,” women could not vote or own property in America. Some seventy years later, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote, “To vote is the most sacred act of citizenship,” the government of the United States still did not treat women as equals, having yet to grant them the right to vote. But sixty-four years after that Geraldine Ferraro declared, “We can do anything,” and became the first American woman to run for vice president on a major party ticket. Today, surely our country is ready for a leader who, as Elizabeth Dole said, “will call America to her better nature.”This captivating book illuminates the bravery and tenacity of the women who have come before us. With an engaging narrative, fascinating quotes, and elegant illustrations, it not only shows how far women have come but also reveals the many unsung roles women have played in political history Step by step, these capable ladies have paved the way for our young leaders of tomorrow.

also: The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard (DVD)

What happens when a perky supermarket manager from West Yorkshire finds herself at the head of a political movement that sweeps her into office as Britain’s new prime minister? For starters, how about moving England’s capital, demoting the queen, and doing something about global warming?

Jane Horrocks (Life Is Sweet, Little Voice) stars as Ros Pritchard, a perfect boss and attentive mother hen to her workers at Greengages Superstore in rural Eatanswill. Ros is so frustrated with the state of politics and the caliber of politicians that she runs for election herself, determined to make a point. And what starts as a bit of a joke gathers momentum, with even a couple of heavyweight politicians defecting to her side.

In no time, she is leading a feminist revolution in British politics, with like-minded women all over the country following her example to run for Parliament as part of the new Purple Democratic Alliance. She’s a breath of fresh air: she speaks the language people have wanted to hear for so very long. The country, previously apathetic in the face of the options available, turn out in their millions and elect Mrs. Pritchard in on a landslide. Which is where her problems really begin.

Sally Wainwright, writer and creator of the five-part series admits that “During the last election, I found that I didn’t really want to vote for anybody — because they all seemed as bad as each other. I thought it would be great fun to write an epic story with a central character who was prepared to stand up and point this out.”
