More about the book, from Penguin Random House:

After November 8, 2016, first came the sadness; then came the rage, activism, and protests; and then, remarkably, for thousands of women, the next step was to run for office. More women campaigned in state and national races in 2018 than at any other time in US history—and far from being just one “Year of the Woman,” this was only the beginning.

Journalist Caitlin Moscatello has written about female candidates running for office in the wake of the 2016 election for New York magazine’s The Cut, Elle, and Glamour; and in See Jane Win, she further documents this pivotal time in women’s history. Closely following a handful of candidates throughout the entire process, Moscatello tells the story of a movement and the important shift in the way women are represented in America.

Told over the course of a year and a half, from the candidates’ decision to run through Election Day 2018, See Jane Win takes readers inside the campaigns that made up the surge of women running—and getting elected in record-breaking numbers. From Abigail Spanberger, the former CIA agent in Virginia who unseated a Tea Party–backed incumbent in one of the night’s biggest upsets, to Catalina Cruz, the first Dreamer elected to the New York State Assembly (in Donald Trump’s old stomping grounds, no less), candidates of all stripes across the nation demanded their seats at the table, changing the face of politics as we know it and creating momentum for future elections. See Jane Win is the definitive look at the women behind the wave.
