"Over the last few years we've seen a remarkable surge of women running for office, and even better, winning. Running takes courage, passion, and commitment, but it also takes books like this. June and Kate have created a wonderful resource for women as they think about taking the leap."--Hillary Rodham Clinton Turn "can I do this?" into "yes, I can!" Join the growing wave of women leaders with Represent, an energetic, interactive, and inspiring step-by-step guide showing how to run for the approximately 500,000 elected offices in the US. Written with humor and honesty by writer, comedian, actress, and activist June Diane Raphael and Kate Black, former chief of staff at EMILY's list, Represent is structured around a 21-point document called "I'm Running for Office: The Checklist." Doubling as a workbook, Represent covers it all, from the nuts and bolts of where to run, fundraising, and filing deadlines, to issues like balancing family and campaigning, managing social media and how running for office can work in your real life. With infographics, profiles of women politicians, and wisdom and advice from women in office, this is a must-own for any woman thinking of joining the pink wave.… (mere)

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review such an insightful, important book.

I have experience in the political field, working on and assisting with several campaigns in a critical role. I have a lot of knowledge about the process and steps of campaigning, but I found this book to be invaluable. The angle of being aimed specifically at women, written by women, and featuring great women was something I'd never experienced. I have been considering a run for office within the next few years, and I will definitely be buying this book in hardcopy to have by my side at all times when I do.

Not interested in running for office but I found a lot of value in reading 'Run For Something' and thought this might not be another good book. While I really liked for RFS, I remember thinking that book also didn't quite address certain barriers that candidates from marginalized groups such as women, LGBTQ+, BIPOC, the disabled, etc. So this seemed like a book that would be a good book that would address women running for office.

Part workbook, part history book, part 'how to guide', etc. the book takes the reader through the process from the costs to the pitfalls to how to more naturally expand one's circle for supporters, money, resources, etc.

Honestly? RFS is a better book. This one tried to be far too many things at once: profiles of women currently in office, "to dos" for how to run for office, the history of women running and recent history of what led us to this moment, etc. Way too many things going on.

I also thought that these weren't the right authors for this book. I'm not sure how many people could simply email and then be put in front of EMILY's List when many candidates (not just women) really struggle to get traction, attention, money, help, etc. I liked how RFS was open about how there's a good chance your campaign will be quite slim: just you and a friend or maybe just you.

I'm not saying this is a terrible book: I'm willing to bet for the right person it'd be a really great fit. But I really thought 'Run For Something' was superior for what it was trying to do without being too "cute."

Recommend library borrow for this. ( )
