New Young Adult Book She Represents by Caitlin Donohue Celebrates Feminism, Activism, and Social Change in Politics

Minneapolis, Minnesota, Sept. 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just in time for election season, She Represents: 44 Women Who Are Changing Politics . . . and the World written by Caitlin Donohue and published by Zest Books™, an imprint of Lerner Publishing Group, sheds light on the motivations, goals, strengths, and even missteps of the most powerful women in the political sphere.

In a complicated political era when the United States feels divided, women are being elected at record rates and government is beginning to more accurately reflect the people it represents. Each of the forty-four women characterized in this illustrated book has demonstrated her strengths in political and community leadership, both in the United States and around the world. Written in an approachable, journalistic tone and rounded out by beautiful color portraits, history, key political processes, and thought-provoking quotes, this book will inspire and encourage women everywhere to enact change in their own communities and to pursue opportunities in public affairs.

She Represents shows readers what the road to power looks like for women in modern times and includes politicians in the media spotlight such as Kamala Harris, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, and Betsy DeVos. This diverse and inclusive collection is a must-have title for teens who want to make a difference in their world.
