    Description

    Shannon Watts was a stay-at-home mom folding laundry when news broke of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. 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 has 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 multitasking 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.

    Inspiring!!!

    Such a good read for anybody (but especially women) who want to get involved in activism. She talks about how and why she started Moms Demand Action and the many many trials she’s undergone. But she also inspires you to get involved regardless of life status.

    Truly, it’s a good read.

    A Must Read

    This book is not only about the Gun Violence Prevention movement although a large portion of it is dedicated to the Moms Demand Action group and its phenomenal growth, it also offers practical advice for anyone who wants to get involved in activism of any kind. Shannon details her foray into the world of activism, the surprises and misteps along the way and provides the kind of insight that is only possible when someone has been on the front lines. If you're thinking of starting a movement, I can think of no better place to start than by reading Fight Like a Mother. Even if you're not going to start a movement or even become an activist, there's plenty of application for real life situations, whether you're a mother or not.

    It made me cry

    This book is so inspiring! On a day when 11 more people have lost their life to gun violence, it is hard not to feel overwhelmed with the fight to keep us all safe from gun violence, but listening to Shannon Watts describe the birth of Moms Demand Action and guide the reader through the power we have to change the world, I am reminded of the victories we have made and that we must #KeepGoing. Thank you, Shannon, for giving me a platform to action and for writing this book.

    GrassRoots

    First, I am so glad that Shannon read this book. it needed to be in her voice. More importantly, if you are someone who wants to get involved, who is involved, or who wants to start a grassroots movement, this is a book for you. Shannon answers so many questions. And she makes healthy suggestions as to what to say to friends and family, how to keep safe, and how to keep on going, even in the face of setbacks.
