Regardless of the 2020 election results, the real work begins now.

Today, women in the United States are more educated and politically ambitious than ever before. However, the record numbers of women running for office, casting votes, and marching for change haven’t translated into full and equal political participation. On average, women are less likely than men to engage in a huge range of important political activities—from speaking up on the issues they care about to holding their representatives accountable.

There are lots of reasons we fail to get involved, despite how much we care. Maybe you’re worried that you don’t know enough to be an effective advocate. Or maybe the problems seem so big and overwhelming that you feel paralyzed, or like our political system is broken, and you don’t know which tools and tactics will actually create real change.

Equal parts information and inspiration, After You Vote: A Woman’s Guide to Making an Impact, from Town Hall to Capitol Hill is both a primer and call-to-action for women of all ages who want to exercise their voices and engage more fully in civic life. It’s the ultimate guide to political engagement, filled with practical (and proven) tactics to make your voice heard and have an influence on the issues YOU care about most—whatever those may be.

Many of the skills you need—to get local roads fixed or to engage on issues of reproductive health, global warming, or any issue you’re passionate about—you likely already have. You just need to brush up on the basics and get focused. That’s where this book comes in. Written by Courtney Emerson, cofounder of All In Together, After You Vote is a nonpartisan, nonjudgmental starting point for all women who want to do more but aren’t sure where to start, featuring stories and tactics from changemakers across the country.

This book will help you:

  • Brush up on how our government is structured and how the legislative process works (from Congress to your local city council)
  • Find out who represents you and the best ways to engage and influence them
  • Prioritize your issues, where you can make the most difference
  • Plan for the kind of long-term civic engagement that actually makes change happen (politics is a marathon, not a sprint!)

The question isn’t if you can create change on behalf of the issues you care about. You can. The question is: What’s at stake if you don’t? You already have issues—now is the time to do something about them.
