Fight Like a Mother AudioBook Summary
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.
