A woman in the House (and Senate) : how women came to the United States Congress, broke down barriers, and changed the country by Ilene Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the first 128 years of our country's history, not a single woman served in the United States Senate or House of Representatives. All of that changed, however, in November 1916, when Jeannette Rankin of Montana became the first woman elected to Congress -- even before the Nineteenth Amendment gave women across the U.S. the right to vote. Beginning with the women's suffrage movement and going all the way through the results of the 2012 election, Ilene Cooper covers more than a century of U.S. history in order to highlight the influential and diverse group of female leaders who opened doors for women in politics as well as the nation as a whole

Fighting for common ground : how we can fix the stalemate in Congress by Olympia J Snowe( Recording )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An outspoken centrist, Senator Snowe stunned Washington in February 2012 when she announced she would not seek a fourth term and offered a sharp rebuke to the Senate, citing the dispiriting gridlock and polarization. After serving in the legislative branch at the state and federal levels for forty years, including eighteen years in the US Senate, she explained that Washington wasn't solving the big problems anymore. In this timely call to action, she explores the roots of her belief in principled policy-making and bipartisan compromise. A leading moderate with a reputation for crossing the aisle, Senator Snowe proposes solutions for bridging the partisan divide in Washington, most notably through a citizens' movement to hold elected officials accountable

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Recent legislative battles over healthcare reform, the federal budget, and other prominent issues have given rise to widespread demands for the abolition or reform of the filibuster in the US Senate. Critics argue that members' traditional rights of unlimited debate and amendment have led to paralyzing requirements for supermajorities and destructive parliamentary tactics such as ""secret holds."" In Defending the Filibuster, a veteran Senate aide and a former Senate Parliamentarian maintain that the filibuster is fundamental to the character of the Senate. They contend that the filibuster

Governing in a polarized America : a bipartisan blueprint to strengthen our democracy by Bipartisan Policy Center( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bipartisan Policy Center launched the Commission on Political Reform in 2013 to investigate the causes and consequences of America's partisan political divide and to advocate for specific reforms that will improve the political process and that will work in a polarized atmosphere. The commission met at public and private institutions across the country to hear from interested citizens, political leaders, and issue experts about the problems and potential solutions. It is clear that Americans are concerned about the lack of civil discourse and the increasing inability of the U.S. political system to grapple with the nation's biggest challenges. These shortcomings put the nation at risk of losing its standing in the world. This report, 'Governing in a Polarized America: A Bipartisan Blueprint to Strengthen our Democracy', is the culmination of the commission's public and private deliberations"--Page 7
