Product Details


“There is nothing more powerful than an army of young women and their combined voices. Smart and sharply written, this is an excellent guide to the how and why of a life of public service.” —Amy Poehler, creator of Smart Girls

“I am so inspired by these amazing stories, each a testament to the fact that we need more young women devoted to public service. Yes She Can shows the extraordinary difference their voices can make.” —Valerie Jarrett, former advisor to President Obama

“Human beings are way more likely to do what we see than what we are told. That’s why YES SHE CAN, a collection of firsthand stories, is even more likely to bring women’s talent to Washington than are the statistics about why such talent is needed. This book is like out-stretched hands from personal friends who want to help you make a difference.” – Gloria Steinem, author & feminist activist

“The extraordinary women whose stories are reflected in this book embody courage, hard work, persistence, and resilience—characteristics we should demand from all of our leaders. This honest and inspiring look at politics and government is a must-read for anyone—especially any girl—who dreams of changing the world for the better.”
Cecile Richards, lifelong activist and former president of Planned Parenthood
Yes She Can offers heartfelt stories of public service from unstoppable young women determined to make this world a better place. Necessary reading that will inspire and empower a new generation of girls focused on social impact.” —Elaine Welteroth, activist, editor, and author

“Yes She Can shows the importance of creating spaces for women and girls to showcase their brilliance and excellence. It is exactly the book girls need to read right now to show them that everyday girls can and will change the world.”  
Marley Dias, Author, Activist, & Founder of #1000blackgirlbooks

“Amidst difficult times, Yes She Can is a beacon of hope. A road map for girls who want to make a difference, these stories show a depth of diverse experiences and the breadth of opportunities young women have to change the world. Yes She Can reminds us that government belongs to everyone.” —Amanda Nguyen, founder of Rise
“Oh, how I welcome this book! I heard the women of Yes She Can telling me boldly and clearly: We are bringing change. And what a powerful, most welcome, and much-needed message that is.” —Mariska Hargitay, actor, advocate, director, and producer
“Inspiring, hopeful, funny and emotional, Yes She Can is a marvelous collection of untold stories of American women committed to public service. They dared to believe in themselves and their nation and, by doing so, helped change the Presidency, the White House, and the course of history for us all.” —Raffi Freedman-Gurspan, former Obama Administration LGBT liaison
Yes She Can mixes narratives of poignant personal journeys and exceptional work with clear guidance on how to make a deep meaningful impact through public service.” —Megan Smith, CEO of shift7 and third U.S. Chief Technology Officer
