This book is super cute! 📚 I have an e-galley of this book, but I am going to have to buy a physical one. This little book contains a two page spread for 100 inspirational women and includes several lesser known facts for each of them. 🙌🏼📖

TheReadingMermaid Okay no problem. Will do next time 😉 2y
GabrielleDubois And what if one of the authors you name thought: "Ok, my dear readers want to invite me for dinner, let's answer them it's ok for me!" Do you think this author could have dinner for free for the rest of his life? ? 2y

What Happened | Hillary Rodham Clinton

5/5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I was already a big HRC supporter, but now I admire her even more. The crap she has had to endure during her career is ridiculous, and as a woman attorney in the male-dominated legal profession, I could relate. I learned more about the Russian political inference that occurred in the 2016 election and it did a great job of showing HRC‘s personal side. It was hard to read without tearing up, but ultimately it was worth it.

MelissaSue81 I want to love this book. I really do.. I‘m just having a hard time with it. 2y
Jess7 How far in are you? Reading or listening to it? @MelissaSue81 2y

MelissaSue81 Listening. Just started hour 9, so a little over halfway. 2y
Jess7 If the emails stuff is weighing you down, skip it and come back to it. The chapters are labeled so you should be able to skip around. @MelissaSue81 - The parts about her emails was annoying, but I think she did a good job at explaining some of the misconception about them well. I found the Russian investigation stuff heavy and maddening, but really interesting.. maybe skip to that. 2y
RaimeyGallant Come on, library hold! 2y

Yesssss 🙌🏼 —in my experience as a woman in a male-dominated profession this is sadly very, very true. We need to change this!! 😡 #strongertogether

I am almost finished with this book. It has been difficult, but it has been worth it. 💙 #HRC #imwithher #whathappened #feminist #resist #supportwomen #thefutureisfemale #proudfeminist #feminism #imstillwithher #womensrights #currentlyreading #audiobook #mustread

keys_on_fire Some great points!!! 2y
Weaponxgirl That's great! The thing about children always annoys me too! We never hear men asked how they balance looking after the children with an important job, ugh 2y

🎧 Listening to more of #WhatHappened this morning and I had to stop to create this graphic and share it with you. To keep from tearing up😢, I had to balance this heartfelt quote with with her awesome wardrobe. 👩🏼‍💼 No one else can rock a colorful pantsuit quite like #HRC. I just love her. 😍 I love her poise, her eloquent words, her strength, and her awesome pantsuit collection. 🙌🏼 #imwithher 💙#imstillwithher #feminist #nastywoman 🙋🏻‍♀️

Andrea313 I just love her, too, and am so happy when other people voice their support. ❤ 2y
Jess7 Absolutely! You should have seen me during the campaign. I convinced my husband who is usually apathetic about politics to watch every debate with me, and on Election Day it was a proud moment for me when we both cast our votes for the first female US presidential candidate. My Facebook status that day was “Excited to witness history today. #imwithher ..” Unfortunately what happened later wasn‘t the history I was hoping for. @Andrea313 (edited) 2y
SexyCajun I listened to the audiobook and LOVED IT!!!! 2y

Vansa Didn't want to read the book because it was just too sad!! I love the graphic, super cool ! 2y
SleepyDragon Pantsuit rainbow. Hope your graphic goes viral. 2y
Jess7 Someone else created the rainbow and but I added to the quote :-) @NeesyBeth 🤗🤗 2y

I bought the hardcover copy of #WhatHappened by #HRC when it first came out, but have yet to take the time to read it. Every time I think I am in the right headspace to tackle it, I end up doing something else. So I placed the #audiobook on hold with #overdrive several months ago... and it finally became available today! I hope listening to the audio will give me the push I need to start it. Have you read it? 💙📚

#HRC #imwithher #imstillwithher

Beachesnbooks I listened to this on audio even though I have the physical copy too and I honestly liked it a lot better on audio since Hillary reads it herself 2y
Jess7 That‘s good to know. I love that I own the book, and the end pages are beautiful, but I think I will prefer the audio book for most of it too. @Beachesnbooks . Plus, I think listening to it will actually make me start it finally. 🤗 2y
Jess7 I listened to the book she wrote about her time as Secretary of State a couple years ago and it was really good. Better on audio though bc it got into the weeds a bit with the foreign policy in China, etc. @Beachesnbooks 2y

Traci1 I haven't read it yet, but I want to. I do think I'll get it on audio since she's the one reading it. 2y
Pamwurtzler I had to read it a chapter at a time. It was just so hard to read- depressing as heck. 2y
Christine I put it off for so long, but I did the audio and found it wonderful and comforting to hear her voice! 2y
Allydanielle88 I love this book. I can't wait to hear your thoughts. 2y
Christine11 I was kind of ambivalent towards her originally but I liked her a lot more after reading it - she had a lot of really interesting points to make and came across as smart and genuine. I bet the audio will be even better if it‘s her doing it! 😊 2y
avgeyer I enjoyed it- and I also had to wait till I was ready for it! 2y
1001BooksPodcast I loved this book. And I learned that I keep track of my reading the same way as Bill Clinton which is pretty cool haha 2y
BookaholicNatty I have been wanting to read this too but felt the same exact way you did! I didn‘t realize she read the audio book herself. That may be the factor that pushes me to actually dive in. Glad you shared this! 2y
Jess7 You‘re welcome! I‘m excited about it. @BookaholicNatty that‘s interesting @1001BooksPodcast ; good to know @avgeyer That‘s cool @Christine11 - I‘ve heard she gets more personal in this book. Definitely will let you know thoughts when I finish @Allydanielle88 2y
Jess7 Great @Traci1 I hope you start it. I may have to take it in doses or I may devour it - probably will depend on how mad I get at Trump along the way. @Pamwurtzler 😂 2y
Traci1 I've sort of been putting it off because I didn't want to fall into that same pit of despair I was in at the end of 2016. 2y
Jess7 Understood. @Traci1 Maybe ease into it like @Pamwurtzler suggested. I could look at those end pages every day smile so long as I don‘t think about “what happened” after. 😞 2y
SleepyDragon I was actually told that it is even more powerful hearing it in her own voice. Enjoy the book. 2y
BarbaraTheBibliophage I read it right when it came out. I‘m not sure I could‘ve listened to her voice telling the story. It would‘ve been so much more emotional for me. But reading it was perfect and I‘m so glad I read it. I recommend balancing it with Donna Brazile‘s book 2y
Jess7 Update: I‘m loving it, but it‘s hard to listen to. I felt myself getting teary-eyed almost immediately. Woah, this is going to be long one. @BarbaraTheBibliophage @NeesyBeth @Traci1 @BookaholicNatty @1001BooksPodcast @avgeyer @Christine11 @Allydanielle88 @christine @Pamwurtzler @Beachesnbooks 2y
avgeyer @Jess7 the first part was really rough- I was crying almost immediately. But it got easier as I kept reading! 2y
Jess7 Good to know. I love it, but I‘m at work reviewing contracts... all I need is to start crying when a colleague walks by my office. I‘m trying to keep it together. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣🤞🏼 @avgeyer 2y
avgeyer @Jess7 😂😂😂 I hope your colleagues are in the know about what books can do to a person! 2y
Jess7 Haha, probably not. I‘m a female attorney in a typical male-dominated office. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I think I am past the really hard part for now. @avgeyer 2y

It‘s been awhile since I picked up this book - finished reading a few more chapters. The chapter on #HRC and #sexism was my favorite. She is such a strong and powerful woman. As a female attorney, I cannot help but be enamored with her. She is my idol, and I cannot wait ‘till we finally shatter the highest glass ceiling. #Imstillwithher #Feminism #Feminist #Democrat #politics #Liberal #Imwithher #currentlyreading (almost finished, 1 chapter left)
