Hillary and Chelsea Clinton are writing The Book of Gutsy Women. Presumably, Hillary wont be included.(snip)
According to its description, its for tiny feminists, mini activists and little kids who are ready to take on the world. In addition to classic heroines such as Harriet Tubman and Helen Keller, the book also includes Communist Clara Lemlich and Republican Margaret Chase Smith.
It also includes the unavoidable cameo by Hillary. She doesn't get a mention, but her portrait hangs in a gallery illustration at the front of the book. If you needed evidence that too many childrens books are political, She Persisted is just one example.
That leaves little hope, aside from the fact that the former secretary of state and her daughter are writing it, that The Book of Gutsy Women is really just about gutsy women.(snip)
There is, however, one type of "gutsy" lifestyle that will surely not be highlighted: a family-oriented one. Hillary struggled for years to distance herself from her mocking 1992 comments about baking cookies, which drew the ire of stay-at-home moms across the country.
I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulfill my profession, she said. In the last legs of her 2016 presidential campaign, though, she embraced them.
Hillary and Chelsea may have amassed an eclectic line-up of activists for their upcoming book, and they may even succeed in keeping The Book of Gutsy Women from being overly political. (At least it's not called Nasty Women.)
But the authors will also carry their own blind spots into the project: Chelsea, thinking politicians such as Warren are the types of leaders young girls should emulate, and Hillary, thinking the greatest things women can accomplish are the loudest.

You think they wrote it? Or, are writing it?
By those terms it clearly excludes HillaLard.
I think Helen Keller was also a Communist. Due to her incredible hardship she can be forgiven.
I would be surprised if Hillary or Chelsea wrote a single word.
Sorry, I think I meant Hillary-tard.
Someone else probably did.
No, it really truly would not.
Is the writer pretending they wrote it?
What is wrong with people?
Yes I have a feeling that someone else wrote This Book.
The Clintons had this book ghost written.
Do we know who the gutsy women are? Are they mostly liberal in politics?
Anyone else DID write it. Duh!
What are the odds that Maggie Thatcher, Golda Meir, Indira Ghandi or any other woman who actually succeeded where Hillary failed will be included?
“Hillary and Chelsea Clintons book on gutsy women...”
More like obnoxious women.
Chelsea—born on third base and thinks she hit a triple...
she has nothing to teach anyone....
I’m looking forward to the chapter on Sarah Palin.
We went from “Everyone I don’t like is Hitler.,” then to “is a Russian Hacker” then to “is a White Supremist”.
This book will be more Pravda.
Let me tell you something about gutsy women that their admirers never notice: The didn’t ask or need anyone’s leave to go do what they wanted to do. They didn’t screech in the streets demanding special treatment and a grooved path. Women, since the Woman’s Lib movement have been anything but gutsy.
Gutsy women don’t live with a perv for half their lives for political gain....Tell that to Huma, too.
Web Hubble’s daughter is doing okay for a Socialist!
Hillary quite clearly has a gut.
