Summary
"Shannon Watts was a stay-at-home mom folding laundry when news of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary flashed across the television screen. Heartbroken and fed up, Watts decided to do something about it. [This book] is a riveting account of how one mother's cry for change grew into a national movement, Moms Demand Action, a powerful grassroots network with millions of supporters and local chapters in all fifty states. Watts has been called 'the NRA's worst nightmare'--and her army of moms has bravely gone up against the big guns (literally), showing up in their signature red shirts, blocking the hallways of Congress with their strollers, electing gun sense candidates, and running for office themselves, proving that if the eighty million moms in this country come together, they can put an end to gun violence. Bringing activism into the everyday, Watts explores the unique power of women to enact change--starting with what they have, leading with empathy, asking for help, and doubling down instead of backing down. While not everyone can be on the front lines lobbying Congress, every mom is already an organizer, a multitasker, and a hero going into battle every day for the ones she loves. Fight Like a Mother will show them how to put their skills to use and offer inspiration to get to work transforming hearts and minds, and passing laws that save lives."--Dust jacket
