“Never losing faith, we waited through the many years of
struggle to achieve our rights. But women weren't just
waiting; women were working. Never losing faith, we worked
to redeem the promise of America, that all men and women
are created equal. For our daughters and our granddaughters
today we have broken the marble ceiling. For our daughters
and our granddaughters now the sky is the limit.” —Nancy
Pelosi, after being sworn in as Speaker of the House
When Nancy Pelosi became the first woman Speaker of the
House, she made history. She gavelled the House to order
that day on behalf of all of America’s children and
said, “We have made history, now let us make progress.” Now
she continues to inspire women everywhere in this thought-
provoking collection of wise words—her own and those of the
important people who played pivotal roles in her journey.
In these pages, she encourages mothers and grandmothers,
daughters and granddaughters to never lose faith, to speak
out and make their voices heard, to focus on what matters
most and follow their dreams wherever they may lead.
Perhaps the Speaker says it best herself in the Preface: “I
find it humbling and deeply moving when women and girls
approach me, looking for insight and advice. If women can
learn from me, in the same way I learned from the women who
came before me, it will make the honor of being Speaker of
the House even more meaningful.”
This is a truly special book to share with all the women
you know. It is a keepsake to turn to again and again,
whenever you need to be reminded that anything is possible
when you know your power.
