Dear Madam President; An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World
“Could it be that women are meant to go only so far in the world? No, that can’t be it. Women haven’t plateaued; it is the rules we were playing by that are outdated.” – Jennifer Palmieri, Dear Madam President

Framed as an empowering letter to the first woman president, and by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field, Dear Madam President is filled with forward-thinking, practical advice for all women who are determined to seize control of their lives–from the boardroom to the living room.
