WELCOME SUPERMAJORITY READERS

It’s fall and we’re ready to get cozy with a good book while we take down the patriarchy. Each month we’ll share our featured book and woman-owned bookstore to help us envision a world where gender equality is realized. We’ll also host a virtual book talk with each author grounded in our Majority Rules. Come back here to find discounts on our featured books, discussion prompts, community events, member-to-member recommendations, and more.

DECEMBER BOOK OF THE MONTH

Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds

December’s book of the month is Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds by Huma Abedin. In this beautifully written and propulsive memoir, Huma Abedin—Hillary Clinton’s famously private top aide and longtime advisor—emerges from the wings of American political history to take command of her own story.

AUTHOR EVENT

Make sure to snap a photo and tag us on social media @Supermajority #MajorityReaders. Finished with the book? Tell us your thoughts! We may even spotlight your member review.

Some of the issues, themes, and discussions can be challenging, especially as they pertain to topics of oppression, violence, and trauma. Be sure to take steps to prioritize your mental health and wellbeing, and see our list of resources if you need support.

How has your family shaped your values? 

In Both/And, Huma talks about the role of family and what she learned from her parents. Share how your family, chosen or biological, have shaped your values and experiences?

How do the themes in "Believing" connect to Supermajority Education Fund's Majority Rules?

How did the vulnerability in the book make you feel?

The vulnerability of Both/And has resonated with so many readers. Why do you think that is and what makes it both powerful and challenging for women in politics, especially women of color, to be vulnerable?

Join the Conversation

A good book makes you think, and we know our members are buzzing with thoughts about Believing. Members in Pantsuit Nation x Supermajority will be discussing the book, gender-based violence, and how we can make the Majority Rules realized. Join now and be on the lookout for book club prompts.
