Praise

“Day convincingly makes a case for universal coverage and more and better investments in social services.”
Booklist

“Day offers a simpler remedy for fixing healthcare. If we want a healthcare system that’s more humane, more practical, and gets the important things right, turn to women. Read it and let’s get going.”
—Andy Slavitt, former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

“Accessible and straightforward, compelling and provocative, this book is a primer in healthcare and an activist call to action in one, a must-read for anyone interested in better health for all in the United States.”
—Sandro Galea, dean of the School of Public Health at Boston University and author of Well

“Day addresses one of the issues that matters most to women and moms in our country today: protecting our healthcare. We are raising our voices, sharing our stories, and fighting to protect our coverage and to stop the price gouging that is pushing prescription drug prices out of reach for so many families. Women will indeed shape the future of healthcare in this country.”
—Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, executive director and CEO of MomsRising

“Day’s book is a breath of fresh enlightenment over a murky and complex topic. Her analysis is sharp and powered by exceptional passion and insight. Read it to be informed and mobilized.”
—John McDonough, Harvard Chan School of Public Health

“Women have been at the forefront of our efforts to reduce risks in our communities—from gun violence to climate change—and they are the drivers for building healthy and sustainable homes, communities, and, ultimately, nations. In this indispensable book, Day makes the case for why activism by women for our health and healthcare is the path forward for a resilient nation.”
—Juliette Kayyem, former assistant secretary, Department of Homeland Security, and author of Security Mom
