あらすじ・解説

Hillary Rodham Clinton and her daughter, Chelsea, share the stories of the gutsy women who have inspired them - women with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done.

She couldn’t have been more than eight years old. “Go ahead, ask your question,” her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, “You’re my hero. Who’s yours?”

Many people - especially girls - have asked us that same question over the years. It’s one of our favorite topics.

HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible.

CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock whom I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends’ moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, and professors and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth.

Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the 21st century. While there’s a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book.

So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historian Mary Beard used wit to open doors that were once closed, and Wangari Maathai, who sparked a movement to plant trees, understood the power of role modeling. Harriet Tubman and Malala Yousafzai looked fear in the face and persevered. Nearly every single one of these women was fiercely optimistic - they had faith that their actions could make a difference. And they were right.

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. So in the moments when the long haul seems awfully long, we hope you will draw strength from these stories. We do. Because if history shows one thing, it’s that the world needs gutsy women.

Profound and loving support

We all need to identify with heroes and to hear that you can overcome bleak times and profound obstacles. The message I heard is that my story is just as vital, profound and valuable as anyone else’s This book is an exercise in empathy, leading to the choice to
take sustainable action moving forward ...
come what may.
I want to listen to this book over and over so that I can learn the names and stories of these remarkable gutsy women, to nurture my
Soul.

Thank you Hillary, and Chelsea… Both Gutsy
Women!!

Very Informative,Entertaining, & Thought Provoking

Even if you don't like Hillary Clinton, this is a great book! Don't let your politics get in way. It's a wonderful mother/daughter undertaking.
Beautifully done, bringing "gutsy women" to our attention.

My only criticism is Hillary and Chelsea narrate back and forth....listening made my brain hurt, as Hillary's voice is mellow and slower, while Chelsea is quick/fast and at a higher pitch.
I BET they didn't listen to themselves together on tape.......as they're so use to each other they didn't realize there was a huge contrast!

More encyclopedia than book

This is, essentially, an encyclopedia. If you approach as such - and as a stepping off point for further exploration of prominent and influential women - you will avoid some disappointment others might feel.

We are all going to have certain women we think should be in a book like this, but who don't make it, for whatever reason. I won't hold that against Clinton^2, because it is an inherent limitation to any project of this sort. My biggest criticism is that the book doesn't do enough with the material. You, the reader, will get short bios of a generous spread of gutsy women (Clinton^2 do a good job of trying to get an international cross-section of women and to cover a number of different areas of influence), but that is about all you'll get. With the authors being two women who have lived very prominent and influential lives, themselves, I was really hoping for up to the final third of the book to be an analysis of how to foster such gutsiness in women/girls/daughters and where to go from here.

Whether or not that was too much work or would have potentially made the book more controversial than they wanted, in order to reach a broader audience, we are left with these (admittedly well-written) encyclopedia entries. I should clarify that it's not like Clinton^2 copied and pasted Wikipedia entries. HRC has written a number of books at this point, and she is a talented non-fiction writer. There are a number of personal interactions recounted along the way, and the authors make a point of adding how certain women inspired them personally.

I hope that this book isn't pigeon-holed as a book just for women, because, while women may be the primary audience, the book can also serve as an important blind spot patch for men who may not have been exposed to information about a lot of the included women in classrooms, home life, or through various media sources. HRC's brand of feminism has never been about tearing down men, but instead focuses on removing barriers to letting women reach their full potential. This should be a bit more palatable to male readers than works that label men as "the problem" and place the burden of change almost entirely upon them.

Clinton^2 make for an entertaining narrator team. HRC has always done a great job narrating (maybe it's all the reading to her daughter and grandkids), and having Chelsea added to the production helps differentiate the quotes and makes this all the more relatable for mother-daughter pairs who will be listening to the audiobook.

Wow, beautiful book!

Thank you Hilary and Chelsea for such a wonderful, beautiful and classy book. I have never come across anything like it. To highlight the lives of so many gutsy women in one book was brilliant and so inspirational. I love this book so much I bought the hard copy the minute I finished the audio. It will forever be a treasured book. My greatest wish is that women and men from all over the world read it.

My go-to book for inspirational boosts

Given the huge list of empowering and inspirational women’s stories that this book covers it really doesn’t matter if you have it on tap as and when you need a power boost. Forget your political views, Hillary has always and will always create a platform for women that come after her and celebrate those who she’s admired and drawn her own inspiration from. Every women MUST read this (in my opinion) if for no other reason than to realise how incredible, capable and superhuman we can be as a gender!

A very interesting listening!

The book was very well researched! While I was familiar with some 50% of these gutsy women the other 50% were a wonderful discovery!

Wow!! What a read this was!!

I am all about gutsy women and I downloaded this because I saw Hillary and Chelsea on the Graham Norton show and well it sounded like fun. Oh my days. Inspiring. Interesting. Intellectual. If history lessons had been taught like this at school I might have actually learnt something. A fabulous collection of stories about women you thought you knew and ones you realise you you knew nothing about. All blazing the trail our daughters will follow. Amazing ladies, and if you are going to make a point about the injustice in the world and the hand you have been dealt. What an amazing way to do it. Never give up.

I greatly enjoy this audible book

Im an admirer of both authors as writers and as gusty women in their own right. I loved listening to the stories of women who have made a difference in our world. Its made me question what more could I be doing to help.
