All over the world, #MeToo inspired generations of women to fight in new ways for their rights.

In Brazil, women run for office at the risk of intimidation and murder.
In China, activists drown out internet censors and defy arrests.
In Egypt, the president calls protestors terrorists.
In Tunisia, activists bring down a predatory government minister.
In Nigeria, the movement unites Muslim and Christian survivors.
In Pakistan, actresses confront accused assailants in court.
In Sweden, the movement rocks citizens to their core.

Awakening reveals the true scope of the greatest global reckoning on women's rights in history.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Awakening goes where no book has gone before, taking readers on a journey around the world in a powerful exploration of the most widespread cultural reckoning around women's rights in history. In chronicling the global impact of the #MeToo movement, Meighan Stone and Rachel Vogelstein capture the speed and scale of women-led organizing in the digital age, as well as the social, economic, and legal progress that's possible when we come together to demand change. Inspiring, insightful, and profoundly moving, this book is a must-read for women and men alike. - Hillary Rodham Clinton

You'll be moved by the brave women in Awakening - just like #MeToo founder and activist Tarana Burke was when she read their stories. Through their reporting and research, Meighan Stone and Rachel Vogelstein bring us closer to a new generation of women who are using digital activism to achieve change - Malala Yousafzai

Dynamically told and sharply written, Awakening is the global #MeToo book we've been waiting for, transporting readers over borders and across cultures - Jill Filipovic

A must-read for anyone thinking about the social and political consequences of #MeToo. This book provides critical insight into the movement's global impact and the future of equality for women around the world - Soraya Chemaly
