A gifty, voice-driven celebration of the most powerful woman in America: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Part of the QUEENS OF THE RESISTANCE series!
The last few years have seen a wave of renewed participation and excitement among women in politics. From unprecedented gains for women in office at the last midterm elections, to the record-breaking number of women running for president, to private citizens getting involved in their own communities, there’s more enthusiasm than ever for women stepping up and getting things done.
The QUEENS OF THE RESISTANCE series will proclaim the glory of some of our most beloved women in Congress: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, to be published simultaneously.
None of this could have happened without the historic, trailblazing leadership of Nancy Pelosi. The daughter of a Congressman and a Democratic party organizer in Maryland, Pelosi worked her way to the top over the course of three decades and became the most powerful woman in America. In other words, she learned to play the game better than anyone. And in the wake of the 2016 election, Pelosi led the charge to take back the House and regain her place as Speaker of the House—a position no woman before her has held.
In a fun and substantive fusion of narrative and illustrations, every book in the QUEENS OF THE RESISTANCE series will appeal to the broad, diverse, intergenerational audience that reflects the backgrounds of the game-changing politicians they celebrate.
Series Overview: Queens of the Resistance celebrates the rise of prominent women in Congress who have changed our politics and culture.
