Description
 
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. In one
moment, she went from outraged to engaged and decided to do something about it.
What started as a simple Facebook group to connect with other frustrated parents
grew into Moms Demand Action, a national movement with millions of supporters
and a powerful grassroots network of local chapters in all 50 states. Shannon
has been called "the NRA’s worst nightmare”—and her army of moms have
bravely gone up against the gun lobby, 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 80 million
moms in this country come together, they can put an end to gun violence.

Fight Like a Mother is the incredible account how one mother’s cry for change
became the driving force behind gun safety progress. Along with stories of
perseverance, courage, and compassion, Watts shines a light on the unique power
of women—starting with what they have, leading with their maternal strengths,
and doubling down instead of backing down. While not everyone can be on the
front lines lobbying congress, every mom is already a multi-tasking organizer,
and Shannon explains how to go from amateur activist to having a real impact in
your community and beyond. Fight Like a Mother will inspire everyone—mothers
and fathers, students and teachers, lawmakers, and anyone motivated to enact
change—to get to work transforming hearts and minds, and passing laws that
save lives.
