Appeared in Library Journal on 1986-01:
``There is no way any presidential candidate is going to choose a woman as a running mate . . .,'' said Geraldine Ferraro at the July 1983 meeting of the National Women's Political Caucus. One year later Walter Mondale chose her. This account of the 1984 campaign is candid and direct. Ferraro effectively conveys her dedication to the principles of the Democratic party, her great respect for Fritz Mondale, and the sense of pride with which she carried the high honor bestowed upon her. The Reagan/Bush ticket triumphed by an 18-point margin, but Ferraro's candidacy was also a triumph. Ferraro's concession speech says it best: ``the days of discrimination are numbered. American women will never be second-class citizens again.'' For most libraries. Kathleen Hoeth, NYPL
