Madame President from the Author: Helene Cooper. The harrowing, but triumphant story of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, leader of the Liberian women’s movement, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and the first democratically elected female president in African history. When Ellen Johnson Sirleaf won the 2005 Liberian presidential election, she demolished a barrier few thought possible, obliterating centuries of patriarchal rule to become the first female elected head of state in Africa’s history. Madame President is the inspiring, often heartbreaking story of Sirleaf’s evolution from an ordinary Liberian mother of four boys to international banking executive, from a victim of domestic violence to a political icon, from a post-war president to a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist and bestselling author Helene Cooper deftly weaves Sirleaf’s personal story into the larger narrative of the coming of age of Liberian women. The highs and lows of Sirleaf’s life are filled with indelible images; from imprisonment in a jail cell for standing up to Liberia’s military government to addressing the United States Congress, from reeling under the onslaught of the Ebola pandemic to signing a deal with Hillary Clinton when she was still Secretary of State that enshrined American support for Liberia’s future. Sirleaf’s personality shines throughout this riveting biography. Ultimately, Madame President is the story of Liberia’s greatest daughter, and the universal lessons we can all learn from this “Oracle” of African women.

Madame President from the Author: Helene Cooper. The harrowing but triumphant story of Liberia’s greatest daughter—Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first female president of an African nation and winner of the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize. When Ellen Johnson Sirleaf won the 2005 Liberian presidential election with the help of women voters, she demolished a barrier few thought possible. She obliterated centuries of patriarchal rule to become the first female elected head of state in Africa’s history; on a continent and in a culture where women are treated as possessions or objects of conquest, Sirleaf’s ascent to political power is equal parts astonishing and inspiring. Madame President is “a brisk chronicle of a strong-willed, tireless, and determined leader” (Kirkus Reviews), recounting Sirleaf’s evolution from an ordinary Liberian mother of four boys to international banking executive, from a victim of domestic violence to a political icon, from a post-war president to a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist, bestselling author, and native Liberian deftly weaves Sirleaf’s story into the larger narrative of life for Liberian women. Madame President “unspools like a novel, fitting for a life that is nothing short of mythic” (USA TODAY), as Cooper guides us through the highs and lows of Sirleaf’s life: from imprisonment in a jail cell for standing up to Liberia’s military government to addressing the United States Congress; from reeling under the onslaught of the Ebola pandemic to signing a deal with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that enshrined American support for Liberian’s future. “Impressive for both its detail and insight” (The Washington Post) Madame President is a “propulsive” (The New York Times) book that illuminates the life of Liberia’s greatest daughter in riveting detail and offers universal lessons we can all learn from this “Oracle” of African women.

Madam President from the Author: William Hazelgrove. After President Woodrow Wilson suffered a paralyzing stroke in the fall of 1919, his wife, First Lady Edith Wilson, began to handle the day-to-day responsibilities of the Executive Office. Mrs. Wilson had had little formal education and had only been married to President Wilson for four years; yet, in the tenuous peace following the end of World War I, Mrs. Wilson assumed the authority of the office of the president, reading all correspondence intended for her bedridden husband and assuming his role for seventeen long months. Though her Oval Office presence was acknowledged in Washington, D.C. circles at the time—one senator called her "the Presidentress who had fulfilled the dream of suffragettes by changing her title from First Lady to Acting First Man"—her legacy as "First Woman President" is now largely forgotten. William Hazelgrove's Madam President is a vivid, engaging portrait of the woman who became the acting President of the United States in 1919, months before women officially won the right to vote.
