Product Details


“In See Jane Win, Caitlin Moscatello is telling one of the most urgent stories of our time: about the approach, priorities and challenges faced by new kinds of leaders aiming for new kinds of political power, with an eye toward permanently altering (and perhaps saving) our democracy. Moscatello’s view is both broad and deep: she is looking at the story of women in contemporary politics from multiple angles, and understand race, age, class–and the ideological and policy commitments of these candidates–to be just as crucial to their stories as their gender. Plus: it’s a very fun read! See Jane Win is absolutely necessary moving not just into 2020, but decades of political engagement that are ahead of us.”
Rebecca Traister, New York Times bestselling author of Good and Mad and All The Single Ladies
“If you were depressed about the 2016 election, See Jane Win is a balm–and a playbook. In chronicling the ‘pink wave’ of female candidates who swept to power in 2018, Caitlin Moscatello dives deep into how these victories happened, who made them happen, and what it all means for women and the future of American politics. If you want to understand where we are as a nation and what to watch for in 2020–or if you want to renew your faith in American politics, and maybe even run yourself–you must read this book.”
—Jill Filipovic, author of The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness

“A behind-the-scenes look at the most hopeful trend in American democracy, full of gripping stories and well-researched analysis. If you want to know how our politics are changing—or you want to change them yourself—See Jane Win is an indispensable guide.”
—David Litt, New York Times bestselling author of Thanks, Obama: My Hopey, Changey White House Years

“Journalist Moscatello provides a close-up view of women’s journeys from activists to candidates and politicians in recent U.S. elections…. [She] squarely addresses multiple layers of intersectional biases women face, exposing how racism, homophobia, classism, and sexism may impact candidates. The result broadens conversations about political engagement and clarifies how diverse voices strengthen the political landscape regardless of party affiliation… Moscatello optimistically and realistically balances a blend of demographics and anecdotes from the candidates and politicians, painting a provocative picture about the impact of equalizing representation in the American political world. Memorable stories and illustrative data combine in a pertinent political and cultural analysis.”Kirkus (Starred)

“By going into detail, Moscatello does more than just chart [Spanberger, Cruz, Eskamani, and Lamar’s] rise; she offers ample evidence that women like them are poised to reshape the entire political system.”
Ms. Magazine

“With the upcoming 2020 presidential race and other recent high-profile elections, this book will appeal to a wide range of readers, especially women and teen girls who are intrigued by the wave of female candidates who are changing the face of the American government.”

“In this rousing debut, journalist Moscatello follows left-wing women who ran for American public office for the first time in the 2018 midterms… This optimistic and well-reported look at the post-Trump blue wave will inspire progressive readers.”
