Summary

A collection of essays accompanied by beautiful black-and-white photography from a diverse group of women on the moment they realized they were ready to fight for themselves--including Gloria Steinem, Lena Waithe, Joanna Gaines, Brandi Carlile, Beanie Feldstein, Cynthia Erivo, and Billie Jean King, among others.

"What was the moment in your life when you realized you were ready to fight for yourself?" This question was posed to a diverse group of women, and have been collected in this book of essays. They reveal the interior experiences of women from grade school to octogenarians after they've been challenged, underestimated, or hurt-- and explains how they've used this knowledge to make change. When told "no" these women said "yes to themselves, and their words will make people of all ages feel less alone in the fight for equality. -- adapted from jacket
