Details

Left Bank Books welcomes former Congresswoman Katie Hill, who will discuss her new book, “She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality,” on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on September 23. Hill will be in conversation with founder and director of ProgressWomen Hon. Stacey Newman. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “She Will Rise” from Left Bank Books. Former Congresswoman Katie Hill shares her experience with misogyny and double standards in politics to help women topple the longstanding power structures that prevent them from achieving equality. Powerful women who dare to make mistakes still face swifter and more brutal consequences than men, as the events that precipitated Congressional representative Katie Hill’s resignation, in which she was the victim of revenge porn, clearly demonstrate. But Katie Hill does not want women to be discouraged from taking positions of power — in fact, the rampant misogyny we see is all the more reason for women to lead.
