On January 21, 2017, the day after Donald J. Trump´s inauguration, more than three million marchers of all ages and walks of life took to the streets as part of the largest protest in American history to voice a common message: Hear our voice. It became the largest global protest in modern history. Compiled by Women´s March organizers, in partnership with Condé Nast and Glamour magazine Editor in Chief Cindi Leive, Together We Rise - published for the one-year anniversary of the event - is the complete chronicle of this remarkable uprising. For the first time, Women´s March organizers - including Bob Bland, Cassady Fendlay, Sarah Sophie Flicker, Janaye Ingram, Tamika Mallory, Paola Mendoza, Carmen Perez, and Linda Sarsour - tell their personal stories and reflect on their collective journey in an oral history written by Jamia Wilson, writer, activist and director of The Feminist Press. They provide an inside look at how the idea for the event originated, how it was organized, how it became a global movement that surpassed their wildest expectations, and how they are sustaining and building on the widespread outrage, passion, and determination that sparked it. Together We Rise interweaves their stories with ´´Voices from the March´´ - recollections from real women who were there, across the world, and 22 short, thought-provoking essays by esteemed writers, celebrities and artists.

Srikkanth Bhattacharya is a quintessential gay bachelor and perfectly happy about it—until he gets a call from the local hospital telling him his best friend died in childbirth. Sri had agreed to provide the sperm to make Jill´s dream of motherhood come true, but he´d never expected to have to make decisions for a baby girl. He intends to place her with an adoptive family, but once he sees her, Sri can’t bring himself to do it. So now he’s struggling to learn how to deal with a newborn. His housemate and friend, Jaime Frias, volunteers to help, never guessing he’ll fall in love with both the baby and Sri. Everything seems perfect until a visit from Social Services sends Sri into a tailspin, feeling like he has to choose between his daughter and a relationship with the man he’s coming to love. 1.
