Women are rising with strength, resilience, and courage. For the first time in history, women are 50 percent of our work force. Keep Marching is a practical guide for building women’s power and leadership that offers a personal, persuasive, and highly-researched examination of the institutional, economical, and political barriers that hold women back. Author Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner-the executive director of MomsRising, a speaker at the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and an effective advocate for more than two decades-offers compelling data, timeless tools, thought-provoking stories, and inspiration for how women can create change in their everyday lives and communities-and in the country as a whole. Keep Marching offers proven tactics, policy solutions, and strategies any woman can use to build her power.
For example, did you know that:
If a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises?
Women still don’t make equal pay for equal work?
The U.S. doesn’t have paid family/medical leave but 177 other countries do?
One in three women have experienced some form of sexual assault?
Enough is enough! Keep Marching offers groundbreaking solutions-and more-to the hurdles that women in America face every day. This book calls on all badass women for justice to come together and rise.
All of this book’s proceeds will be donated to MomsRising, a nonprofit organization advocating for women’s rights.
"I thank MomsRising for the work to help pass the Affordable Health Care Act. While many organizations are involved in the advocacy for this the way you at MomsRising communicate on the subject in real time was a real source of encouragement and confidence for us."
—House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi
"I thank MomsRising for their tremendous advocacy. They have spent countless hours making calls and sending letters to Senators, and sharing the terrible experience of moms, dads and children who have been affected by unsafe food. I have been grateful to work with MomsRising to pass this legislation (The Food Safety Modernization Act) that will protect American consumers."
—Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid
"Hats off to you (Kristin) and to MomsRising because you have been one of the most influential groups in helping people's voices being heard."
