2008 - Political writing
Best Political Book of 2008. Updated version published in 2012: Your Voice, Your Vote is a manifesto for this year’s woman voter and for male voters who care about the women in their lives. Martha Burk empowers the reader to cut through the double talk, irrelevancies, and false promises, and focuses directly on what’s at stake for women not only in the 2012 election, but also in the years beyond. Where women stand, what women think, and what we need -- with tough questions for candidates to hold their feet to the fire. Your Voice, Your Vote should be carried to every political rally, every press conference, every precinct meeting -- and into the voting booth.
