Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are writing their first book together about 'gutsy' women through historyBreaking News
Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday that the book will come out Oct. 1. It’s the first time the former secretary of state and presidential candidate has written a book with her daughter. Each has published several previous works, including Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened” and “Living History” and Chelsea Clinton’s children’s book “She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World. ”
“The Book of Gutsy Women” includes portraits of more than 100 women, including presidential candidate Shirley Chisholm, Saudi activist Manal al-Sharif, entertainer Ellen DeGeneres and author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The Clintons also will tell of heroines among their friends and family members.
“To us, they are all gutsy women — leaders with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done,” Hillary Clinton said in a statement. “This book is a continuation of a conversation Chelsea and I have been having since she was a little girl, and we are excited to welcome others into that conversation.”
Chelsea Clinton said in a statement that the women in their book “share a fierce optimism that their work and lives will make a difference in the world.”
