Women Were 2014's Winners

Hello, Readers:

After Election Day 2014, I shared my view with MSNBC and Women's eNews about women's wins in 2014, positioning those women who would lead politically for even bigger victories in the years to come.

It does seem clearer than ever that women in public life -- at the highest levels of engagement -- are here to stay, notwithstanding the ups and downs inevitable to such a life. Here is my reasoning:

Why Women Were the Real 2014 Winners

Seven Strategies for Stepping Up Our Political Women

Best wishes.

Gillibrand's In, Clinton's Not

Dear Readers:

Here is a link to my piece earlier this week, prompted by the publication of Off the Sidelines, for Huffington Post Politics, taking a look at alternate strategies for women who seek the U.S. presidency: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rebecca-sive/gillibrands-in-clintons-n_b_5784170.html.

Senators Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar are also in the mix, so plenty of food-for-thought.

Best wishes.

Holy Grail of Women's Political Power is Executive Office

Dear Readers:

I recently wrote about women's pursuit of executive political office, prompted by the defeat of Allyson Schwartz in the Democratic primary for governor of Pennsylvania. The article may be found here.

I also spoke about this issue on IOP TV, the channel of the University of Chicago Institute of Politics. That clip may be found here.

Best wishes.

C-suite doors still locked: time to push in from the outside

Dear Readers:

Another year, another report from Catalyst saying: "No progress" for women in the executive suite.

Time to propose a new strategy. And, so, I did so for Huffington Post Business.

I also recommended business women follow the lead of their political sisters and seek public leadership, for both its personal and professional rewards. Here is recent video in which I make the case.

Hadiya's Story: Love in the Time of Hate
originally posted: February 20, 2013

Dear Readers:

"Super Bowl weekend was a one-two punch. First, there was the announcement of President Obama's proposed policy the New York Times wrote would mean "churches and religious organizations that object to providing birth control coverage on religious grounds would not have to pay for it," notwithstanding the needs of their employees. Next was a picture of the president skeet shooting at Camp David.(Who knew!)

"I couldn't help myself: Super Bowl Sunday I found myself mulling over the state of the union."

At this address:http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rebecca-sive/hadiyas-story-love-in-the_b_2638853.html, you may find the rest of this Huffington Post piece of mine, reflecting on the dismal state of the union.

As always, I welcome your comments. Feel free to write to me at: rebecca@rebeccasive.com.

Sincerely,

(Again) Hillary Clinton Teaches Us How to Run Political Table
originally posted: December 11, 2012

Dear Readers:

"The bottom line is, it's hardball time for American girls political. Whether in D.C. and on the world stage; in Chicago; or, say, in Kentucky, where actress Ashley Judd is contemplating a U.S. senate race (even though she hasn't lived there for years). Wherever you look, the girls are running the bases. No time to cool out. Time to take stock and figure out how to win the next political games for the girls' team."

And the girls' team is led by #Hillary Clinton: Are you listening #Susan Rice?

This one may be found here.

Best wishes,

Rebecca
