A behind-the-scenes look at the organization that transformed Congress-and became a force for female empowerment. In 1985, aware of the near-total absence of women in Congress, Ellen Malcolm launched EMILY's List, a powerhouse political organization that seeks to ignite change by getting women elected to office. The rest is history: Since then, EMILY's List has helped elect 23 women senators, 12 governors, and 116 Democratic women to the House. When Women Win delivers stories of some of the toughest political contests of the past three decades, including the historic victory of Barbara Mikulski as the first Democratic woman elected to the Senate in her own right and Elizabeth Warren's dramatic Senate win. It is both a page-turning political drama and an important look at the effects of women's engagement in politics.
