We created our Read/Watch/Listen recommends section as part of our Working Together Newsletter series, that began back in March. It was our way of staying connected with the Women for Election network. Many of you suggested some great books, and we have decided to compile them all in a handy list.

Excellent analysis ⁦@jenoconnell⁩. Diversity in public representation is critical to effective governance. Ireland ranks very poorly: Only 1 in 5 women & very minimal visible diversity in public office here. Put simply we need #MoreWomen elected. https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/jennifer-o-connell-biden-s-cabinet-looks-like-america-the-d%C3%A1il-doesn-t-look-much-like-ireland-1.4465371
