Summary
"In the presidential election of 2008 America seemed ready to elevate a woman to the presidency or vice presidency and - with Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin - was on the verge of actually doing so. Words like inevitable and phenomenon were in the air and the political and cultural stars seemed to be aligned." "Why didn't it happen? What will it take to make it happen soon?" "In a probing analysis sure to ignite controversy, acclaimed White House correspondent Anne Kornblut argues that the optimists are blind to formidable obstacles that still stand in the way of any woman who aims for America's highest political offices. And she makes clear exactly which strategies and common assumptions will need to change if a woman intends to break through the "highest, hardest glass ceiling" of all."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
