Together we rise : behind the scenes at the protest heard around the world by Condé Nast Publications( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On January 21, 2017, the day after Donald J. Trump's inauguration, more than three million marchers of all ages and walks of life took to the streets as part of the largest protest in American history. In red states and blue states, in small towns and major urban centers, from Boise to Boston, Bangkok to Buenos Aires, people from eighty-two countries -- on all seven continents -- rose up in solidarity to voice a common message: Hear our voice. It became the largest global protest in modern history. Now Women's March organizers tell their personal stories and reflect on their collective journey. They provide an inside look at how the idea for the event originated, how it was organized, how it became a global movement that surpassed their wildest expectations, and how they are sustaining and building on the widespread outrage, passion, and determination that sparked it. Those stories are interwoven with "voices from the March," recollections from real women who were there, across the world, along with photographs and brief essays by noted writers, celebrities, and artists

Politician Maxine Waters was born on August 15, 1938 in Kinloch, Missouri. Her work has earned her the reputation of being an outspoken advocate for women, children, people of color and the poor. In 1966, Waters was hired as an assistant teacher with the newly formed Head Start program in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles. Waters became the voice for frustrated Head Start parents. Waters' concern for parents' rights led her to become involved in local politics, and in 1973 she went to work as chief deputy to City Councilman David Cunningham. In 1976, Waters quit her job and successfully ran for election to the California State Assembly. After serving for fourteen years in the California State Assembly, in 1990 Waters successfully ran for the U.S. House of Representative.
