As Washington correspondent for TIME, journalist Jay Newton-Small writes about everything from Washington politics to foreign policy and national trends. In her new book, Broad Influence: How Women Are Changing the Way America Works, Newton-Small takes readers through the offices and hallways of Capital Hill to demonstrate how women are reaching across the aisles, coalescing, and affecting lasting change. With deep interviews, including conversations with Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Mikulski, Kirsten Gillibrand, Valerie Jarrett, Sarah Palin, Kelly Ayotte, Cathy McMorris Rodgers, and dozens of other former and current public figures, Broad Influence is an insightful look at how women are transforming government, politics, and the workforce, and how they are using that power shift to effect change throughout America.
