Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0812963512, Hardcover)Women on the Hill is an absorbing, exhilarating account of power politics after the 1992 election, when the ranks of congresswomen swelled following the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas debacle. Former Newsweek correspondent Clara Bingham chronicles the victories and blunders of veteran Colorado Representative Pat Schroeder, New York Representative Louise Slaughter, and newcomers Cynthia McKinnley, the first black Georgia representative, and Washington Senator Patty Murray--the "mom in tennis shoes." Most illuminating is the behind-the-scenes look at how legislation like the Family and Medical Leave Act and federal funding for abortion triumphed or was trashed. The book shows how one generation of rebels dynamited the door, while the next moved inside to sit down.
