Hillary And Chelsea Clinton Team Up To Write ‘The Book Of Gutsy Women’ | Arts
Hillary Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, have written a new book together titled The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories Of Courage And Resilience due out on October 1, from Simon & Schuster.
In this book, they have profiled over 100 groundbreaking women, talking about their history and how they have, in their way, changed the world.
“If history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women”, the Clintons say. “So in the moments when the long haul seems awfully long, we hope you will draw strength from these stories. We do”.
From Manal Al-Sharif, who filmed herself driving a car in 2011 in defiance of Saudi Arabian laws while talking about Marie Curie, to the young teenage climate emergency activist Greta Thunberg, to even comedian Ellen DeGeneres, the Clinton women wanted to spotlight the most admirable female figures with The Book Of Gutsy Women.
“Each of these women have fought and won the kinds of victories that pave the way for progress for all of us”, said Hillary Clinton. “This book is a continuation of a conversation Chelsea and I have been having since she was a little girl, and we are excited to welcome others into that conversation.”
The Clinton clan wants to share the names and history of women, from whom they have drawn inspiration, and whom any woman (or even man) can also draw inspiration. If you’re interested, the book goes on sale from October 1.
