In essays, profiles, and interviews, activists and women at the highest levels of national governments describe election campaigns, party politics, and work in parliamentary chambers; whether and how their agendas and political styles differ from men's; and how, unlike men, they must manage family responsibilities and accept public scrutiny of their personal lives.

Review:

"A Rising Public Voice is an exciting volume by and about women in government South Africa and the United States, Asia and Eastern Europe, and elsewhere that offers an excellent analysis of where we've been, where we are, how far we've yet to go, and how we feel and think about politics. I highly recommend this book." Congresswoman Maxine Waters, California

"An inspiration and a guide to young women all over the world who hope to continue opening the corridors of political power to daughters, sisters, and mothers now and in the future." Senator Barbara Mikulski, Maryland

"No issues are more urgent for our planet's future than the issues explored with vision and depth in this splendid book. It is a provocative and important contribution to our ongoing struggle for respect, influence, and power. Every feminist, everyone concerned about women's rights, world politics, and the future, will want to read and ponder this book." Blanche Weisen Cook, author of Eleanor Roosevelt, Volumes One & Two

From Booklist:

If, despite current tensions, the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing goes forward, this collection of essays by or about women taking on major governmental responsibilities around the globe will be a useful resource. In "Reality Politics," Brill blends surveys of women's struggle for political access in Australia, New Zealand, India, and Bulgaria with discussions of women's political "place" in a reunified Germany, China, Israel, and Palestine. "Paths to Power" includes essays on how notable individuals won political credibility in Japan, South Africa, Portugal, Britain, and the U.S., plus profiles of nine leading female politicians. "Women Count" spells out statistics on women's participation in governments around the world while "Women Hold Up Half the Sky" offers visions of a better future from activists in Central and South America and Africa. Only 5 of the 20-plus pieces Brill has selected are published elsewhere, so libraries whose readers care about women's political accomplishments will want to add A Rising Public Voice to their shelves. Mary Carroll
