Hillary Clinton to Cement Status as Celebrity Feminist with Book of Essays


Hillary Clinton, unsurprisingly, has a new book deal. It happens to be through Simon and Schuster, which is a bit strange, given that the publishing house is the current subject of a boycott or at the very least a lot of condemnation over their deal with Milo Yiannopoulos. Of course, their deal with Clinton may have been in the works for a while. Anyway we’re glad to see Clinton joining the hot literary trend and making like the leading ladybloggers and online feminists with a smart essay collection that includes some of her favorite inspirational quotations.

Even better, because of Flavorwire’s prized status in the literary world, we got a sneak peek at some of the chapters in the book proposal* as well as the outlets they’ll appear in. Here are a few titles we just might see:

“It Happened to Me: I Got Fucked Hard By the Electoral College.” (XoJane)

“My Pantsuits, Myself.” (Elle Magazine)

“10 Lessons I Wish I Had Learned from the Wise, Yet Cranky Old Jewish Man Who Used to Badger Me.” (Bustle)

“Yes, My Husband Is Creepy — But Like, Garden Variety Creepy, You Know, Not a Total Predator Troll Like My Opponent?” (Jezebel)

“That Time I Tried Smash the Highest, Hardest Glass Ceiling, and My Heart Got Sliced Open By the Shards Instead.” (Refinery29)

“My Stalker and Harasser Is President of the United States.” (Medium)
