Donohue, Caitlin

She Represents: 44 Women Who Are Changing Politics...and the World

(3) YA Illustrated by Briana Arrington. Content warning: Donohue's introduction states that "not all the women in this book are what I would consider heroes." Instead of showcasing fan favorites, the book offers the range of experiences and influence women have had in (mainly American) politics. Leaders include US senator Elizabeth Warren, current US secretary of education Betsy DeVos, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Each four-page profile follows the same format: "Life Story" and "What's on Her Agenda," followed by lists of "Awesome Achievements" and "Quotables." Portraits of nineteen of the profiled women are included.
