From School Library Journal:

YA Although it is occasionally repetitive and slow, Momentum presents an interesting portrayal of women's lives in politics today. Side themes address the questions of why more women do not choose or survive political life and the special difficulties and rewards of being a female in what continues to be a male-dominated profession. From interviews with women politicians and staffers, the authors reveal the complex structure of the world of politicsthe difficulties of finding money, getting backing, campaigning, winning (or losing), and being heard once electedand so shed light on the sort of commitment needed for public life. There is useful information here for research, and those contemplating a career in public service would do well to read about the realities that they face. Sally Bates, Houston Public Library

From Publishers Weekly:

This spirited look at the advances women have made in the political arena explores many facets, and despite the conclusion that women do not yet have parity with men, is nonetheless positive about how far they have come. Romney, a Republican national committeewoman, and Harrison, coauthor of The Shock of Motherhood, interviewed female politicians and note that sexism is not entirely dead. Although a growing number of women hold office at local and state levels, there is a paucity of women in federal positions, including Congress. As candidates they also have difficulty raising funds, notably in securing vitally important "early money." But the authors are optimistic that soon women will truly have a representative say in government.
