More About Why Congress Needs Women by Michele A. Paludi
 
 
 
Overview

In October 2013, after the war between Republican and Democratic men in Congress resulted in a government shutdown, "Time" magazine referred to the women legislators as "the only adults left in Washington." In "Why Congress Needs Women: Bringing Sanity to the House and Senate," editor Michele A. Paludi and various contributors explain how women in Washington have redefined leadership and power by embracing a transformational leadership style: a style that incorporates empowerment, ethics, nurturance, inclusiveness, and social justice, transcending their own self-interests for the good of the group--or, in the case of the shut-down, for the good of the nation.

A resource that will prove invaluable for anyone interested in politics and leadership as well as students taking courses in politics, women's studies, gender studies, or management, the chapters provide an in-depth review of the ways women in Washington are striving to find lasting solutions to our nation's challenges. The contributors document the mindset and methodologies women legislators are using to achieve their legislative goals and work toward creating gender-equitable environments in Washington's well-established climate where bullying, harassment, and sexual exploitation is perceived as normative. Insights from interviews with women senators and congress members enhance the scholarship discussed in this book.
