Out Today: Groundbreaking Guide on How to Create Change in Today’s Women’s Movement, By MomsRising CEO Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, a Keynote Speaker at the Women’s March
KEEP MARCHING: How Every Woman Can Take Action and Change Our World (Hachette Books) answers the question that many women were confronted with after the 2017 March on Washington: What do we do next? KEEP MARCHING is a thorough, well-researched guide, comprised of straightforward how to’s, policy recommendations, stories from women across the nation, and strategies on how to foster change in today’s movement for women’s equality and equity. It is available online and in bookstores today.
With candor and unflinching passion, Kristin narrates the struggles and successes of everyday women. Each chapter is supported by powerful data, anecdotes and concrete tips for moving forward—whether it’s how to run for office or address barriers beyond just the glass ceiling. It leaves readers with one essential fact: Women are a powerful force.
In the process of unpacking systemic biases that contribute to the wage gap, rape culture, the high levels of maternal mortality, the growing rate of incarcerated women, and other topics, Kristin demonstrates the power women have to bring change. Her book provides the tools, incentive and information we need to lead, come together and rise. The book will have you nodding in affirmation, fuming in frustration, and fully charged up to make a difference. KEEP MARCHING is the must-have book for every woman in 2018, as we keep marching to change our communities and our country for the better. Hot-Button Topics addressed in KEEP MARCHING:
