Awakening, by Rachel Vogelstein and Meighan Stone

Staff Pick

This excellent book by lawyer Rachel Vogelstein, an expert on gender policy, and Meighan Stone, formerly head of the Malala Fund, is the first to capture the global impact of the #MeToo movement. The authors construct their case with stories of courageous women who deployed new digital tools to build successful #MeToo movements in seven global hot spots—regions with different histories, cultures, political climates, and records on women’s rights. Awakening does not whitewash the backlash against those who challenge gender injustice, but overall the authors are confident that women can continue to galvanize and organize powerful movements to create change around the world.
