A few years ago, our team had the opportunity to draft a chapter for a book on the American Presidency. In a book otherwise written by and about men, this was our chance to provide a new perspective on the lives and candidacies of the women who have run for the highest office in the country. Our team carefully searched for comprehensive sources on milestones for women as candidates and leaders, but this proved to be a challenge. Not because there were too few "notable" women to count, but rather, because many of the existing records detailing these women were incomplete. That's when we looked at each other and said: "Why stop at a chapter when we can write a whole book?" Our team, energetic and creative as ever, decided on the idea of a planner in 2020. For each month, and as many days as we could find records for, we would honor a particular milestone for women in politics, or the birthdays of women leaders who inspire us.
Please join us in remembering the past, recognizing how far we have come, and reaching toward a future where all women are represented in elected office and leadership positions. Until then, we are proud to present you with our story and 2023 planner, "Building Women’s Political Power for a Healthier Democracy."
Our planners are printed locally and we are proud to support our local businesses. It costs us around $25 to print and ship each planners, so a contribution would be appreciated!
