About this title


A Democratic Congresswoman from Pennsylvania offers a candid account of what she and twenty-three other new congresswomen found when they got to Washington and their experiences during their first eight months in office. 50,000 first printing. Tour.

From Booklist:

This will appeal to readers attuned to politics and the legislative process and to activists involved in the campaigns that elected more women to the House in 1992 than ever before. A 20-year NBC-TV news veteran elected to the House from Pennsylvania, Margolies-Mezvinsky interviewed all but one of the other freshman women as well as other, more senior members of Congress and interested observers including Hillary Rodham Clinton and Ellen Malcolm of Emily's List. The result is an interesting description of how the new female legislators got to Washington and how they learned to cope through the first "scary and exciting and sometimes frustrating" eight months of their terms. From behind-the-scenes maneuvering on the Hyde amendment and the Clinton budget (on which Margolies-Mezvinsky cast the decisive vote in the House) to the congressional version of the familiar problem of "juggling job and family," this account offers useful insights as well as interesting anecdotes. Expect plenty of media attention. Mary Carroll
