        Who Was Eleanor Roosevelt?

        Who Was Eleanor Roosevelt?

        by Gare Thompson

        For a long time, the main role of First Ladies was to act as hostesses of the White House...until Eleanor Roosevelt. Born in 1884, Eleanor was not satisfied to just be a glorified hostess for her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Eleanor had a voice, and she used it to speak up against poverty and racism. She had experience and knowledge of many issues, and fought for laws to help the less fortunate. She had passion, energy, and a way of speaking that made people listen, and she used these gifts to campaign for her husband and get him elected president—four times! A fascinating historical figure in her own right, Eleanor Roosevelt changed the role of First Lady forever.

        by Stine Megan

        Who Was Maya Angelou?

        Who Was Maya Angelou?

        by Ellen Labrecque

        Born in Missouri in 1928, Maya Angelou had a difficult childhood. Jim Crow laws segregated blacks and whites in the South. Her family life was unstable at times. But much like her poem, "Still I Rise," Angelou was able to lift herself out of her situation and flourish. She moved to California and became the first black - and first female - streetcar operator before following her interest in dance. She became a professional performer in her twenties and toured the U.S. and Europe as an opera star and calypso dancer. But Angelou's writing became her defining talent. Her poems and books, including I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, brought her international acclaim.

        Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto

        Why I Am Not A Feminist: A Feminist Manifesto

        by Jessa Crispin

        Outspoken critic Jessa Crispin delivers a searing rejection of contemporary feminism . . . and a bracing manifesto for revolution.

        Are you a feminist? Do you believe women are human beings and that they deserve to be treated as such? That women deserve all the same rights and liberties bestowed upon men? If so, then you are a feminist . . . or so the feminists keep insisting. But somewhere along the way, the movement for female liberation sacrificed meaning for acceptance, and left us with a banal, polite, ineffectual pose that barely challenges the status quo. In this bracing, fiercely intelligent manifesto, Jessa Crispin demands more.

        Why I Am Not A Feminist is a radical, fearless call for revolution. It accuses the feminist movement of obliviousness, irrelevance, and cowardice—and demands nothing less than the total dismantling of a system of oppression.

        Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions

        by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

        From the best-selling author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists comes a powerful new statement about feminism today--written as a letter to a friend.

        A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie's letter of response.

        Here are fifteen invaluable suggestions--compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive--for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can "allow" women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.

        Red Clocks

        by Leni Zumas

        Five women. One question. What is a woman for?
        In this ferociously imaginative novel, abortion is once again illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. In a small Oregon fishing town, five very different women navigate these new barriers alongside age-old questions surrounding motherhood, identity, and freedom.
        Ro, a single high-school teacher, is trying to have a baby on her own, while also writing a biography of Eivør, a little-known 19th-century female polar explorer. Susan is a frustrated mother of two, trapped in a crumbling marriage. Mattie is the adopted daughter of doting parents and one of Ro's best students, who finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn. And Gin is the gifted, forest-dwelling herbalist, or "mender," who brings all their fates together when she's arrested and put on trial in a frenzied modern-day witch hunt.
        RED CLOCKS is at once a riveting drama, whose mysteries unfold with magnetic energy, and a shattering novel of ideas. In the vein of Margaret Atwood and Eileen Myles, Leni Zumas fearlessly explores the contours of female experience, evoking THE HANDMAID'S TALE for a new millennium. This is a story of resilience, transformation, and hope in tumultuous-even frightening-times.

        The Mental Load: A Feminist Comic

        The Mental Load: A Feminist Comic

        by Emma

        A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist.
        "The mental load. It's incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene--you're making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails--at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest 'where are my shoes?, 'do we have any cheese?...'" --Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma's comic
        In her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load--about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it's distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious.. If you're not laughing, you're probably crying in recognition. Emma's comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence.
        Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been. shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L'Express drew 1.8 million views--a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian. Many women will recognize themselves in THE MENTAL LOAD, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really means to be a woman today.

        The Occasional Virgin

        The Occasional Virgin

        by Hanan al-Shaykh

        From a major novelist of the Arab world comes a bold, witty and highly contemporary novel about two women looking for love, set in Italy, Lebanon and London
        Huda and Yvonne are on holiday in the Italian Riviera, enjoying the sun and the sparkling Mediterranean – which feel like forbidden fruit, denied during their conservative childhoods in Lebanon. Even now in their thirties, with Huda a successful producer and Yvonne running her own advertising agency, the remembered injustices of adolescence – an innocent game harshly punished, a mother's relentless criticism – still sting.
        But a chance encounter with a handsome young man in London brings an unexpected opportunity for them to exorcise the past, with entirely surprising results.
        Painting a refreshingly truthful picture of modern womanhood, The Occasional Virgin perceptively explores sexuality, Islam and cultural identity – and the difficulty of finding a man who'll call when he says he will. Frank, funny and fearless, it is the colourful, wickedly entertaining story of two unforgettable characters, and the bizarre lengths we'll go to for love.

        A World I Loved: The Story Of An Arab Woman

        A World I Loved: The Story Of An Arab Woman

        by Wadad Makdisi Cortas

        "This is my story, the story of an Arab woman. It is the story of a lost world. It begins in 1917, in Lebanon, when I was seven years old.” So opens this haunting memoir by Wadad Makdisi Cortas, who eloquently describes her personal experience of the events that have fractured the Middle East over the past century. Through Cortas’ eyes we experience life in Lebanon under the oppressive French mandate, and her desire to forge an Arab identity based on religious tolerance. We learn of her dedication to the education of women, and the difficulties that she overcomes to become the principal of a school in Lebanon. And in final, heartbreaking detail, we watch as her world becomes rent by the “Palestine question,” Western interference, and civil war. The World I Loved is both an elegy on Lebanon and her people, and the unforgettable story of one woman’s journey from hope to sorrow as she bears painful witness to the undoing of her beloved country by sectarian and religious division.

        Eat Pray Love : One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

        Eat Pray Love : One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

        by Elizabeth Gilbert

        This beautifully written, heartfelt memoir touched a nerve among both readers and reviewers. Elizabeth Gilbert tells how she made the difficult choice to leave behind all the trappings of modern American success (marriage, house in the country, career) and find, instead, what she truly wanted from life. Setting out for a year to study three different aspects of her nature amid three different cultures, Gilbert explored the art of pleasure in Italy and the art of devotion in India, and then a balance between the two on the Indonesian island of Bali. By turns rapturous and rueful, this wise and funny author (whom Booklist calls “Anne Lamott’s hip, yoga- practicing, footloose younger sister”) is poised to garner yet more adoring fans.

        Memoirs of an Early Arab Feminist: The Life and Activism of Anbara Salam Khalidi

        Memoirs of an Early Arab Feminist: The Life and Activism of Anbara Salam Khalidi

        by Anbara Salam Khalidi

        Memoirs of an Early Arab Feminist is the first English translation of the memoirs of Anbara Salam Khalidi, the iconic Arab feminist. At a time when women are playing a leading role in the Arab Spring, this book brings to life an earlier period of social turmoil and women's activism through one remarkable life.
        Anbara Salam was born in 1897 to a notable Sunni Muslim family of Beirut. She grew up in "Greater Syria," in which unhindered travel between Beirut, Jerusalem and Damascus was possible, and wrote a series of newspaper articles calling on women to fight for their rights within the Ottoman Empire. In 1927 she caused a public scandal by removing her veil during a lecture at the American University of Beirut.
        Later she translated Homer and Virgil into Arabic and fled from Jerusalem to Beirut following the establishment of Israel in 1948. She died in Beirut in 1986. These memoirs have long been acclaimed by Middle East historians as an essential resource for the social history of Beirut and the larger Arab world in the 19th and 20th centuries.

        “Extraordinary...Books like Little Fires Everywhere don't come along often." —John Green
        "Witty, wise, and tender. It's a marvel." – Paula Hawkins
        From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.
        In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.
        Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.
        When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.
        Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.

        Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

        by Gail Honeyman

        No one’s ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine.
        Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy.
        But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond’s big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one.
        Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . .

        Becoming

        by Michelle Obama

        An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States
        In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America—the first African American to serve in that role—she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare.
        In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations—and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Qui sait qu'elle joue, en coulisses, un rôle capital ? Dans le huis clos de l'Elysée, elle est la première conseillère du chef de l'Etat, sa coéquipière, la véritable "maîtresse des horloges", celle qui le sermonne quand il dérape.
        Chaque soir, une fois fermée la porte des appartements privés, elle lui fait remonter les colères qu'elle perçoit, les doléances qu'elle glane. A l'aise dans les jeux de la cour, cette fausse candide a un avis tranché sur les ministres et conseillers, et le fait savoir. La garde rapprochée du président, qu'on surnomme le "club des Mormons", a dû apprendre, non sans peine, à composer avec cette singulière épouse.

        Simone Veil et les siens

        Simone Veil et les siens

        by Marc Grinsztajn, Philippe Ledru

        De Simone Veil, on réduit trop souvent la biographie à quelques dates phares, dont, évidemment, celles du débat sur l'IVG, en 1974. De même de son image et des rares signes électifs qui l'incarnent aux yeux des Français : un chignon fidèle qu'elle n'acceptera de défaire qu'une seule fois en public, un immuable tailleur Chanel, dont ne varie que la couleur, un collier de perles porté sur une lavallière.
        A la différence sans doute des simplifications biographiques, cette austérité est délibérée. Elle est aussi comme la cuirasse d'une femme parvenue au sommet de l'Etat, soucieuse d'opposer à la curiosité du public et des journalistes une image qui n'offre aucune prise, aucune perspective personnelle. Tout au long de sa vie publique, Simone Veil a soigneusement protégé son intimité familiale et amicale. Antoine, son mari, apparaît parfois au cours de ses campagnes, mais toujours saisi comme une apparition " officielle " . De même de ses enfants, photographiés publiquement, par exemple au ministère de la Santé juste avant les débats sur l'avortement, autour d'une table qui réunit la ministre et son cabinet. Certes, depuis sa retraite politique, avec le succès de ses mémoires, l'entrée à l'Académie française, la multiplication des hommages de toutes natures, se sont multiplié les incursions médiatiques dans la sphère privée de celle qui est restée si longtemps une des personnalités préférées du public. Simone Veil ne s'y est jamais prêtée volontiers et, aujourd'hui, ses deux fils livrent au compte-gouttes les images des albums photos de leur mère. Une émission de télévision ici, un ou deux articles de journaux, un nombre d'images forcément limité. C'est donc pour la première fois qu'ils ont accepté que soient publiées autant de photographies pour la plupart inédites. Cet album fait comprendre quelles étaient les racines de ses engagements, les figures familières, parents, frère et soeurs, enfants et petits-enfants, amis, lieux aimés où elle se ressourçait.
        Commentés par ceux-là mêmes qui lui furent si chers, ses deux fils, Jean et Pierre François.

A travers des " fouilles psycho-archéologiques " des ruines de l'inconscient féminin, en faisant appel aux traditions et aux représentations les plus diverses, de la Vierge Marie à Vénus, de Barbe-Bleue à la petite marchande d'allumettes, elle ouvre la route et démontre qu'il ne tient qu'à chacune de retrouver en elle la Femme sauvage. Best-seller aux Etats-Unis, ce livre exceptionnel est destiné à faire date dans l'évolution contemporaine de l'identité féminine.

        Femmes de pouvoir de l’Antiquité - 10 portraits de Cléopâtre à Théodora (

        by Nicolas Mietton

        On connaît les noms des hommes, rois, empereurs ou conquérants qui ont connu un grand destin. On connaît moins bien ceux des femmes qui ont régné sur le monde antique. En se penchant sur les textes anciens, Nicolas Mietton nous décrit la vie extraordinaire de ces souveraines qui ont détenu les plus grands pouvoirs. Certaines ont été conseillère, épouse ou régente.
        D'autres ont régné elles-mêmes, femmes à la tête de leur royaume.
        Amante ensorceleuse comme Cléopâtre, séductrice comme Théodora, dévote comme sainte Hélène, mère indigne comme Agrippine, belle-mère abusive comme Hatchepsout... A travers leurs destinées hors du commun, redécouvrez Babylone, l'Egypte Antique, les intrigues de Rome et le faste de Byzance.

        هكذا قتلت شهرزاد

        هكذا قتلت شهرزاد

        by جمانة حداد

        حين قتلتُ شهرزاد للمرّة الأولى، قتلتُها في عقلي، تدريجاً، وحصيلة اختبار إنسانيّ ووجوديّ وثقافيّ تدرّب على احتقار المساومة و«البرطلة» في سبيل تحصيل حقٍّ بديهيّ. وعندما أردتُ تجسيد هذه المقتلة، قتلتُها على الورق، قبل خمس سنوات من اليوم، مع صدور الطبعة الأولى من الكتاب.
        الآن، يؤلمني أن تصدر هذه الطبعة الثانية من الكتاب نفسه، من دون أن يكون تغيّر شيءٌ إيجابيٌّ ملموس في أحوال المرأة العربيّة. بل الأدهى، أن تشهد هذه الأحوال المزيد من التفاقم والتدهور.
        نحن اليوم في حضرة المقتلة المفجعة لكلّ ما يتعلّق بالكرامة الإنسانيّة، فكيف لا نكون في حضرة المقتلة المفجعة لكلّ ما يتعلّق بكرامة المرأة العربيّة، أمام أشكال التأليه للذكوريّة البغيضة، في أشنع صورها وتجسيداتها، وهي صورٌ وتجسيدات مهينة في حقّ كلّ رجل حقيقيّ.
        لماذا أعيد قتل شهرزاد مرّةً ثانية؟
        لأنّها لم تمت جيّداً في المعركة الأولى. ولن أكفّ، حتى أنتصر. أعني، حتى تنتصر هي على نفسها.

        أنا ميسان الفلسطينيّة، ابنة الأرض المذهّبة بالشمس، صاحبة العين التي تقاوم المخرز، لن أسلّم مفاتيح البيوت، ولن أغلق الشرفات، ولن أغادر، حتى أشهد العودة إلى الأرض. أنا شيرين اللبنانيّة، أشرب خراب لبنان وآلامه، ليعود القمر يزهو فوق جباله، من دون أن يعتري لحمه الأبيض جرحٌ أو هوان.
        أنا جميلة السوريّة، حارسة الوديعة، أرفع دمي في وجه الليل ليكون جمرةً تحرق يد القاتل. اردموا السماء عليَّ، اجعلوني تحت غيومٍ دائمة، ومدِّدوني في شرايين الماء لكي أنهمر. أنا الأرمنيّة، الفلسطينيّة، اللبنانيّة، السوريّة. أنا الجدّة والأمّ والابنة والحفيدة. أنا الرحم المدوّدة، الدورة التي بدأت بالانتحار، وانتهت بالانتحار. كم من ميتات بعد عليّ أن أحصي، كم من حيواتٍ عليَّ أن أرثي قبل أن أستحقّ الضوء؟

        ذاكرة الجسد
        zakrat al-jasd

        by أحلام مستغانمي

        قرأت رواية "ذاكرة الجسد" لأحلام مستغانمي وأنا جالس أمام بركة السباحة في فندق سامرلاند في بيروت

        بعد أن فرغت من قراءة الرواية، خرجت لي أحلام من تحت الماء الأزرق، كسمكة دولفين جميلة، وشربت معي فنجان قهوة وجسدها يقطر ماءً روايتها دوّختني. وأنا نادراً ما أدوخ أمام رواية من الروايات. وسبب الدّوخة أن النصّ الذي قرأته يشبهني إلى درجة التطابق، فهو مجنون، ومتوتّر، وإقتحاميّ، ومتوحّش، وإنسانيّ، وشهوانيّ... وخارج عن القانون مثلي. ولو أنّ أحداً طلب منّي أن أوقّع اسمي تحت هذه الرواية الاستثنائية المغتسلة بأمطار الشعر، لما تردّدت لحظة واحدة
        هل كانت أحلام مستغانمي في روايتها (تكتبني) دون أن تدري.. لقد كانت مثلي تهجم على الورقة البيضاء، بجمالية لا حدّ لها... وشراسة لا حدّ لها... وجنون لا حدّ له
        الرواية قصيدة مكتوبة على كل البحور... بحر الحبّ، وبحر الجنس، وبحر الإيديولوجية، وبحر الثورة الجزائريّة بمناضليها و مرتزقيها، وأبطالها و قاتليها، وملائكتها وشياطينها، وأنبيائها و سارقيها
        هذه الرواية لا تختصر ذاكرة الجسد فحسب، و لكنّها تختصر ذاكرة الوجع الجزائريّ، والحزن الجزائريّ، والجاهليّة الجزائرية التي آن لها أن تنتهي وعندما قلت لصديق العمر سهيل إدريس رأيي في رواية أحلام، قال لي: لا ترفع صوتك عاليّا.. لأنّ أحلام، إذا سمعت كلامك الجميل عنها، فسوف تجنّ

        أجبنه: دعها تجنّ... لأن الأعمال الإبداعيّة الكبرى لا يكتبها إلا مجانين

        by أحلام مستغانمي

        في كتابها الجديد، تحكي أحلام مستغانمي قصة رجل لوّعه الفراق، ففقد ثقته في الحب من الأساس. رجل غامض يتقرب من الكاتبة، بطلة القصة، ويخاطبها بكلماتٍ ليست سوى كلماتها. جملٌ سبق وقالتها لكاميليا، ملهمة كتاب نسيان كوم الذي حقق أعلى المبيعات.
        من هو هذا الرجل وماذا يريد منها؟ كالعادة، تحملنا أحلام إلى عوالم العشق المثيرة وألاعيب القدر الخبيثة.
        في هذا الكتاب أيضًا صفحات من ذكريات أحلام الكاتبة والإنسانة، تسردها لأول مرة على القارئ. ذكريات طريفة عاشتها مع قامات عاصرتهم مثل نزار قباني وغازي القصيبي، وأخرى عائلية خاصة.
        فيه أيضًا أبطال رواياتها، علاقتها بهم وبالكتابة، فراقها لهم بعد كل كتاب، ولقاؤها المتجدد مع الكتابة بعد كل حين. كل ذلك بالأسلوب الممتع المكثّف سرديًا الذي عوّدتنا عليه، وبالمحتوى الزاخر بقصصها وقصص الآخرين وهمومهم وهواجسهم إن كانت عاطفية أو اجتماعية أو وطنية.

        «هي امرأةٌ عظيمة، وكاتبة كبيرة، رائدة في مجالها مناضلة تنحدر من سلالة الكتّاب الذين تبنّوا عبر التاريخ القضايا الكبرى.»

        وأصبحتُ

        وأصبحتُ

        by ميشيل اوباما

        كان الجانب الجنوبيّ لشيكاغو عالمَ ميشيل روبنسون في طفولتها. هناك، شاطرت شقيقها كريغ غرفةَ نوم في شقّة والديهما، ولعبا في الحديقة العامّة. هناك أيضًا، ربّاها والداها، فرايزر وماريان روبنسون، على التعبير عن رأيها بصراحة ومن دون خوف. ولم تلبث الحياة أن انطلقت بها بعيدًا، من قاعات جامعة برِنستون، حيث اختبرت، للمرّة الأولى، الشعور بأن تكون الفتاة السوداء الوحيدة في القاعة، إلى البرج الزجاج، حيث عملت محاميةً في قطاع الأعمال، وتمتّعت بنفوذٍ كبير، وحيث، صباح أحد أيّام الصيف، أتى طالبُ حقوق يدعى باراك أوباما إلى مكتبها، وأطاح كلّ خططها المرسومة بعناية.
        في هذه المذكّرات، تصف ميشيل أوباما، للمرّة الأولى، بداياتِ زواجها، حين ناضلت للتوفيق بين عملها وعائلتها، على إيقاع التقدّم السريع الذي كان زوجها يحرزه في عالم السياسة. وتُطلعنا على نقاشات الزوجين الخاصّة حول ما إذا كان عليه أن يترشّح للرئاسة، وحول دورها كشخصيّة محبوبةٍ لم تسلم من الانتقاد خلال حملته الانتخابيّة. روت لنا قصّتها بأسلوب جميل، وبكثير من الفكاهة، وببراءة فريدة من نوعها. فقدّمت لنا صورة حيّة عن كواليس حياتها، سواء في رحلة العائلة إلى عالم الأضواء والشهرة العالميّة، أو داخل البيت الأبيض حيث عاشت وأسرتها ثماني سنوات حافلة، تعرّفت خلالها إلى بلدها، كما تعرّف بلدها إليها.
        يأخذنا كتابُ «وأصبحت» في رحلة بين مطابخ آيوا المتواضعة، وقاعات الرقص في قصر باكنغهام. كما يبحر بنا في لحظات الحزن العميق، والشعور بالقدرة الجبّارة على التغلّب على أشدّ الضربات إيلامًا. ويشكّل إضاءةً على ما يدور في أعماق إحدى شخصيّات التاريخ الفريدة خلال نضالها لتعيش حياة غير مزيّفة، ولدى تسخير قوّتها الذاتيّة وصوتها لتحقيق ما تصبو إليه من مُثُل عليا. وهي، بروايتها قصّتها بصدق وجرأة، تضعنا أمام تحدٍّ: مَن نحن؟ ومَن نريد أن نصبح؟
