When Jennifer Palmieri realized that everything in her life had been shaped by men, she wanted to make a change. From work behaviour 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, We Proclaim 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. We Proclaim 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 worldAn 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 combating 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.
THE NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 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 through each chapter 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.
