Virtual Event! New York Times reporter Jennifer Steinhauer at The Broad

We are delighted to partner with The Broad once again for what is sure to be a memorable event online on Crowdcast!

The Firsts stands out as one of the most important and best-reported books written during the extraordinary political chapter in which we are living. One part “you go, girl,” one part “I feel your pain sister,” and one part “we are here to stay,” it’s the most sweeping storytelling I’ve read about the 2018 class of women who arrived in Congress and have already left their mark.”

—Nicolle Wallace, author, and anchor, “Deadline White House” on MSNBC


“As suffragists, who got American women the right to vote 100 years ago, watch our celebrations this year I am sure they would want people to read The Firsts. Why? Women are still less than 25% of Congress. Read The Firsts, run, and join them. Imagine half the Congress being female. Finish the dream.”

—former Congresswoman Patricia Schroeder, Colorado
