About the Author

LINDA HIRSHMAN is the author of the New York Times best-selling Sisters in Law: How Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg Went to the Supreme Court and Changed the World. She writes and speaks on politics in places including Radio Lab's "More Perfect," Slate's "Slow Burn," and the Washington Post.


"Inspiring . . . a tightly constructed narrative about how #MeToo became a cultural phenomenon [and a] celebration of the bold women who stood up for themselves to earn legal victories against harassment." --Publishers Weekly

"Hirshman documents behind-the-scene details, political maneuverings, evidence that was presented or suppressed, truths that became apparent long after decisions went into effect, and how these developments affect current events. The unabated, continuing public outcry against sexual harassment is a reminder that resolution is long overdue." --Booklist, starred review

"In Reckoning, Linda Hirshman delivers a stirring, essential history for women of all ages. Prepare to meet the most important--and in some cases the most unsung--feminist heroes of the past fifty years." --Alyssa Milano, actor and activist

"An important and fascinating history of the intersection of sex and power, in the workplace and beyond. Hirshman's new book reveals aspects of American feminist history many of us did not know, and provides important context around what we thought we did know. An inspiring, necessary, and perfectly timed work." --Anna Holmes, writer and creator, Jezebel

"Reckoning is a gripping account of the most profound cultural, political, and legal transformation of the past fifty years. Pulling no punches and sparing no hypocrites, Linda Hirshman speaks to all of us, men and women alike, in a voice at once urgent and entertaining, about the eternal double helix of sex and power." --Laurence H. Tribe, Professor of Constitutional Law, Harvard Law School
