Albuquerque contributors talk about the book.
 
"I'm not giving up--and neither should you," Hillary Clinton told her supporters following her surprising defeat in the 2016 presidential election. Taking her words to heart, on January 21, 2017, millions of women (and men) across America--opposing a president-elect many considered a misogynist--marched in protest January 21, 2017. Millions more around the world joined them in the first mass action of a new women's political resistance movement. This collection of essays and interviews presents 36 voices in this emerging movement discussing a broad range of topics--activism, healthcare, education, LGBTQIA issues, the environment--and other concerns affecting the political and cultural environment now and for future generations.
