Hillary Clinton, What Happened, €19.99

When Hilary Clinton appeared on the Graham Norton show in October she talked about how she wished she stood up to Trump during the presidential debates and said, “You’re not going to intimidate me like you intimidate women, back off you creep.” She didn’t say it though (a real shame), and in her book, muses on what went wrong in the 2016 elections. It isn’t without flaws (quite a bit of the blame game is played) but she affirmed how she is going to be a voice for women and do everything in her power to speak up and speak out for women all over the world, despite what happened. An essential feminist read.
