"Keep Marching, by the fierce and fearless Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, is a perfect primer for women everywhere who want to take action - whether you're heading to your first town hall meeting or running for office. With wit and clarity, she covers everything from reproductive rights to maternal mortality to mass incarceration, including a powerful and much-needed call to action for white women to step up and do our part in the fight for justice. Keep Marching is not only a how-to manual; it's a celebration of women's power, progress, and potential to change the world."—Cecile Richards, New York Times bestselling author of Make Trouble and President of Planned Parenthood
