Overview

A GROUNDBREAKING, DEFINITIVE WORK ON HOW TO BUILD WOMEN'S POWER

"A perfect primer for women everywhere who want to take action-whether their heading to their first town hall meeting or running for office."
-Cecile Richards, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble and President of Planned Parenthood

"The book we all need to remind us why the fight against white supremacy and patriarchy will actually set us free."
-Patrisse Khan-Cullors, cofounder of Black Lives Matter and New York Times bestselling author of When They Call You a Terrorist


Keep Marching is a practical guide and highly researched examination of the barriers that hold women back-and how to overcome them.
Author Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner--the executive director of MomsRising, and a keynote speaker at the 2017 Women's March in Washington, D.C.--presents compelling data, timeless action plans, thought-provoking stories, a proactive agenda for change,
and inspiration for how women can create change in their everyday lives and in the country as a whole.
This book provides proven tactics, policy solutions, and strategies any woman can use to build her power.

DID YOU KNOW THAT:
  • One in three women have experienced some form of sexual assault?
  • When a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises?
  • The U.S. doesn't have paid family/medical leave but 177 other countries do?
Keep Marching calls on all badass women for justice to come together and rise.
