ABOUT THE BOOK
CNN news anchor Brooke Baldwin explores the phenomenon of women “huddling”—in politics, Hollywood, activism, the arts, sports, and everyday friendships—to make changes, solve problems, and to inspire, amplify, and support one another.
What happens when women stop “leaning in” and start leaning on each other instead?
After reporting on the 2017 Women's March, CNN news anchor Brooke Baldwin set out on a journey across America to investigate the power of the “huddle” — a space (in the workplace and beyond) where women lean on each other for support, friendship, empowerment, and the strength to enact meaningful change. Beyond the headline-making huddles of recent years such as the #MeToo movement, the Times Up initiative, and the 2018 midterm elections when women won a historic number of seats across the country, Baldwin tells the stories of women of all ages, races, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds who are huddling in all segments of society.
A mix of journalism and personal narrative, Huddle explores the benefits of all-girls learning environments, such as Karlie Kloss’s Kode with Klossy and Reese Witherspoon’s Filmmaker Lab for Girls in which young women are given the freedom to make mistakes and find their confidence. The book also looks at the tactics employed by huddles of women who work in male-dominated industries including a group of Democratic Congresswomen, a huddle of African American judges in Harris County, Texas, and an all-female writers room in Hollywood.
