Your Guided Journal to Justice Every Day for Every Woman

“Rebecca Sive’s latest book wants to help females with their New Year’s resolutions of changing the world.” The Chicago Tribune


Every. Woman. Can. Make. Herstory. Her story. That’s the inspiration for Rebecca Sive’s new book (January 2022) for women leaders, advocates, and activists: Make Herstory Your Story: Your Guided Journal to Justice Every Day for Every Woman. 

Make Herstory Your Story is an illustrated journal and workbook, including more than 45 inspirational graphics and writing prompts that move readers to journal their dreams into reality. Organized in three sections: Imagine. Create. Organize., it aims to create the life every woman and girl deserves with practical advice for building projects, organizations — even movements.

Make Herstory Your Story reminds us that every woman — not just the rich, powerful, or famous — can have a positive impact on her community, changing the world for all. It champions the quiet but powerful voice in each of us that wants to be heard. Indeed, Make Herstory Your Story is for every woman who dreams of making the world a better place and is committed to doing the work to get that done.

Make Herstory Your Story is ideal for groups of activists seeking a context for discussion and a springboard to action; available wherever fine books are sold; and at-cost to women’s, girls,’ and movement organizations.


Rebecca Sive, author of Make Herstory Your Story, is the author of three books on American women’s politics and power; a motivational speaker, experienced media and political analyst; admired women’s leadership strategist; and a past lecturer at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and statewide governmental official. Sive co-produced and co-hosted the podcast series, #VoteHerIn, with Two Broads Talking Politics, the latter a “best political podcast,” according to Parade magazine.

In addition to Make Herstory Your Story, Sive’s books include:

  • Vote Her In: Your Guide to Electing Our First Woman President (“inspiring, savvy, and persuasive…” Jessica Yellin, host, News Not Noise) 2018
  • Every Day Is Election Day:  A Woman’s Guide to Winning Any Office, from the PTA to the White House (Cosmopolitan magazine says: a “must read.”) 2013

Sive’s articles and op-eds have appeared in The Huffington Post, Crain’s Chicago Business, The Hill, at MSNBC, The Chronicle of Philanthropy, and elsewhere.
