She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality

Katie Hill shares her experience with misogyny and double standards in politics to help women topple the longstanding power structures that prevent them from achieving equality.

Powerful women who dare to make mistakes still face swifter and more brutal consequences than men, as the events that precipitated Congressional representative Hill's resignation, in which she was the victim of revenge porn, clearly demonstrate. But she doesn't want women to be discouraged from taking positions of power -- in fact, the rampant misogyny we see is all the more reason for women to lead, to work to change the systems that have kept old, wealthy, white men in power for far too long.

In She Will Rise, to be published on the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment (which gave women the right to vote), Hill details how we can overcome the obstacles holding women back from achieving equal representation in positions of power to create the change we want for the next century. She is ready to equip readers for the front lines of leadership in all arenas, to guide women in becoming the warriors we need to shape this country for the better.
