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.
Elizabeth Warren’s volume will celebrate her rise, from her humble beginnings in Oklahoma through her time as a wildly popular professor at Harvard Law School; her record of championing the rights of lower-income families and people in debt; and her path to politics. After creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and successfully running for U.S. Senate, Warren’s presidential aspirations are backed by a lifetime of helping others.
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.
