    Description

    "Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women are created equal. For our daughters and our granddaughters today we have broken the marble ceiling. For our daughters and our granddaughters now the sky is the limit." - Nancy Pelosi, after being sworn in as Speaker of the House.

    When Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the House, she made history. She gavelled the House to order that day on behalf of all of America's children and said, "We have made history, now let us make progress". Now she continues to inspire women everywhere in this thought-provoking collection of wise words, her own and those of the important people who played pivotal roles in her journey.

    In these pages, she encourages mothers and grandmothers, daughters and granddaughters to never lose faith, to speak out and make their voices heard, to focus on what matters most and follow their dreams wherever they may lead. Perhaps the Speaker says it best herself in the Preface: "I find it humbling and deeply moving when women and girls approach me, looking for insight and advice. If women can learn from me, in the same way I learned from the women who came before me, it will make the honor of being Speaker of the House even more meaningful."

    This is a truly special book to share with all the women you know. It is a keepsake to turn to again and again, whenever you need to be reminded that anything is possible when you know your power.

    An essential listen for American women

    Nancy tells the story of how she went from mother of five to the most powerful woman in American government. This is a historically important story and an important book for women who want to learn how to lead.

    Nancy speaks

    This book is excellent! And the most significant being that Pelosi wrote it (albeit w assistance) and even more, that she reads it.
    She is so smart, practical and competent.
    The Susan Page biography gets negative review all around.
    Read or listen to this … in her own voice!

    Outstanding!

    Excellent memoir of a woman who was determined to succeed and broke barriers for women everywhere. Nancy Pelosi did it all and is a role model for all females to know and use their power! Highly recommend this book.

    A story of stepping up and moving forward...

    Great to hear Nancy Pelosi tell her story - the personal parts and the political parts. My favorite part of this audio book was hearing the personal stories of her life as a daughter, wife, and mother. And of course, how amazing that she's reached the place of leadership in our nation's government.

    This is a quick "read" and I was left satisfied and yet wanting more...
