's review

it was amazing

State governors are captains of vast segments of the population with august responsibility and power. When Ella T. Grasso was elected governor of Connecticut, 99.9% of all governors had been men. The six women chronicled by Dr. Johnson won their offices by convincing voters that they could pilot their state better than their male adversaries . . . and then demonstrated that and more. These pioneering leaders were fearless and exceptional, and you can be sure that they have exceptional stories to tell. Through interviews and exhaustive research, Dr. Johnson unfolds the lives of six women who serve as models of strength and resourcefulness, beacons of hope for a nation seemingly on the brink of polarized chaos. These women blazed trails not only for women, but for all non-traditional candidates scaling the walls of the white male political fortress.
