DEEP BENCH: Actress Raphael co-authors book for women and politics

By  | 

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW)-- You've seen June Diane Raphael on the big and small screens. Most notably, playing in the Netflix series Grace and Frankie, as Grace's oldest daughter Brianna.

Her latest venture is a step-by-step guide for women thinking about getting into politics.

The book is co-authored, along with Kate Black, titled "Represent: The woman's guide to running for office and changing the world."

"After the 2016 election, I felt I wasn't doing enough," Raphael said. "I considered a run for office. But after some light googling I realized that information on how to do it wasn't readily available."

NewsChannel 7's Kassandra Sepeda spoke with Raphael on the Deep Bench on NewsChannel 7 at 4.

"It's been so positive," Raphael said, when asked about reaction to this new venture. "Most of the people in my life who know me are not surprised at all."
