'A powerful, personal, and sometimes painful book written for any woman who has ever thought of becoming a leader. I hope it inspires more women and girls because their voices and their leadership are needed now more than ever.' - Madeleine Albright 

Dear Madam President is an empowering letter from former White House Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri to the first woman president, and by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field.

By using lessons learned during her experiences with Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and Elizabeth Edwards-to name a few-Palmieri creates a forward-thinking framework of inspirational and practical advice for all women everywhere-from boardrooms to living rooms-who are determined to seize control of their lives, their workplaces, and their country.

Dear Madam President will turn the results of the 2016 election into something incredibly empowering for future female leaders and independent thinkers everywhere.

We haven't wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men.

This of course was seen during the Hillary Clinton campaign, and no one knows this better than Jennifer Palmieri.

While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the election, Palmieri optimistically argues in the book that the Clinton candidacy and all she experienced on the campaign trail-confusion, admiration, hate, love, acceptance, rejection-can now open the country up to reimagining women in leadership roles.

And that is what Palmieri takes on in this book-redefining expectations for women looking to lead and creating a blueprint for women candidates and leaders to follow.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'My book explained what happened and where we need to go from here. Jennifer Palmieri picks up the ball and runs with it in this book. It's about being a woman, working for a woman, and telling the stories of the personal and professional ups and downs that all women need to hear as we chart our individual and collective futures.' - Hillary Rodham Clinton 

'A powerful, personal, and sometimes painful book written for any woman who has ever thought of becoming a leader. I hope it inspires more women and girls because their voices and their leadership are needed now more than ever.' - Madeleine Albright 

'As Palmieri sifts through Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and loss, she brilliantly addresses the book to a future female leader of the US. Reading it was much like reliving the 2016 election: waves of frustration, double standards to hurdle, the repeated reminder that it is nearly impossible to be a woman in a man's world. But 'nearly impossible' is not 'impossible', and as I turned the last page, I was reminded of something in painfully short supply these days: hope.' - Jodi Picoult
