Hillary Rodham Clinton & Chelsea Clinton - The Book of Gutsy Women—in conversation with Lissa Muscatine at GW Lisner

Politics and Prose & GW Present

The Presidential Distinguished Event Series Featuring Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton

Join Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton as they celebrate the women who have inspired them throughout their lives. The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience highlights the women throughout history who have had the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done.

Inspired by women who blazed the trail, the two global leaders lay out a vision for how these stories of persistence can galvanize women and men, boys and girls around the world. There’s Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate activist whose Asperger’s syndrome has shaped her advocacy. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad, who each kept pushing forward, no matter what. As the authors write, “Ensuring the rights, opportunities, and full participation of women and girls remains a big piece of unfinished business of the twenty-first century. Finishing it is going to take all of us standing shoulder to shoulder, across the generations, across genders. This is not a moment for anyone to leave the fight, or sit on the sidelines waiting for the perfect moment to join.”

The authors will be in conversation with Lissa Muscatine, co-owner of Politics and Prose. Muscatine served as a presidential speechwriter in the Clinton White House and as chief speechwriter to Hillary Rodham Clinton during her tenures as first lady and secretary of state. She is currently working on a book, Hillaryland, to be published by Penguin Press.

This event does not include a public signing, and books will not be pre-signed.
