Summary, etc.:
"When Jennifer Palmieri realized that everything in her life had been shaped by men, she wanted to make a change. From work behavior and use of language to wardrobe choices, she decided to follow her own convictions and reject paternalistic expectations. In an era of wage gaps, the Kavanaugh hearings, the #MeToo movement, and a domineering administration, Jennifer found a way to move beyond the bounds of patriarchy and wants to show readers a way out. Where Dear Madam President introduced a blueprint to succeed and the tools to prosper, She Proclaims gives readers the advice they need to to step out of a man's world and into their own. Jennifer believes that every woman has "power to change the world by changing the way she behaves in it." She Proclaims celebrates the accomplishments and history of the women's movement, and it will inspire you to be subversive, courageous, and bold. This book is a Declaration of Independence for women, broken into three types of sections: A preamble that expresses gratitude for the lessons of a man's world. An assertion: the time has come for women to declare their independence from a world not created for them. Each chapter begins with a "whereas" clause and includes advice for combatting the reality of living in a patriarchy. Through personal reflections and stories of other inspirational female leaders, Jennifer shares the key lessons she's learned from her journey to success"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 May #1
    In Dear Madam President (2018), Palmieri addressed the hypothetical first female president of the U.S., guided by her experience as former White House communications director for President Obama and director of communications for Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign. Now she expands her audience, encouraging every woman to realize her power. The source of that power is the patriarchy, or, more specifically, overcoming the obstacles that this man's world in which we live places in front of women, who must be admired because they persist nonetheless. Using the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention's Declaration of Sentiments as a model, Palmieri lays out complaints and countermeasures, like resisting tokenism, practicing solidarity at work, and valuing age and experience. As feminist manifestos go, it is pretty tame (she only touches on race and uses the term man's world more than patriarchy), but it will draw in women who know they have to work harder than their male counterparts, but have a hard time articulating exactly why that is. It will especially appeal to readers who responded to Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In (2013).HIGH DEMAND BACKSTORY: The hundredth anniversary of the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, the upcoming (all-male) presidential election, and Palmieri's best-seller status will converge to create interest in this title.Women in Focus: The 19th in 2020 Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
