Editorial Reviews

Review

"A cogent argument for gender parity and a revealing look at cultural change." - Kirkus Reviews



"Broad Influence offers a powerful demonstration of how the presence of a critical mass of women changes, and improves, a workplace. Get it for your daughters - and your CEO." - Ruth Marcus, Washington Post columnist

"Jay Newton-Small has seen the future - and it may actually work. Fueled by detailed and intelligent reporting, she demonstrates that the arrival of women into positions of power will really make a difference. This is a real cause for optimism." - Joe Klein, Author of Charlie Mike and Primary Colors

"In this important and timely book, Jay Newton-Small helps Americans understand why the rise of women is not simply a matter of equality but an economic imperative for the United States." - Dana Milbank, Washington Post columnist

"Jay Newton-Small breaks up a great story. It's how women members of Congress have restored the lost politics of compromise. Where men waste time proving who's toughest, women give enduring priority to getting things done." - Chris Matthews, Host of Hardball on MSNBC

About the Author

Jay Newton-Small is a political correspondent for TIME, covering Congress, politics and foreign policy, and covered Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign and her tenure at the State Department. She has focused extensively on women's role in Washington, as evidenced by her Oct. 2013 cover story, Women Are the Only Adults Left in Washington, about the 20 women senators who broke the logjam to get the government restarted and avoid default. She has interviewed every female member of Congress; every living past and present female cabinet member.
