Life Lessons in Speaking Out, Standing Tall & Leading the Way

Gina Miller

I've always believed in standing up for what I think is right. I've always believed in speaking up when other voices are silent. I've always believed in refusing to be cowed by those who shout over you, who want you to go away, who think that just by dragging you through the mud, you will break.

An extraordinary account of what it means to stand up for justice, and for yourself, no matter the cost; now with a new epilogue

‘It is when things feel the most uncertain, and we are at our most tired, frustrated and worn out, that we must dig deep. That’s when we need to find it within ourselves not to turn away and hide in our bunkers, but to rise up and be even more vocal … If we hide, when we emerge from our hiding places the world might be transformed into a hostile, alien environment in which we have no say at all and where the things we love and value no longer exist.’

“Unapologetic, businesslike and impatient to make a difference”
