The title and cover of Hillary Clinton’s highly-anticipated memoir about the 2016 presidential election was revealed this week — and the former secretary of state says she’ll be “letting my guard down” in the book.  Here’s what you need to know!

When it comes to women and shattering glass ceilings, Hillary Clinton has long stood at the frontline of the fight for equality with nearly 40 years’ of political experience to her name.  Nearly nine months on after the US election that seemingly polarised the globe, Clinton is back with news of a new book, enticingly titled: What Happened.  Described as a memoir, Clinton has promised to deliver both honest insight into her campaign and a candid explanation of what went on behind the scenes of her loss to Donald Trump.

According to Simon & Schuster, the introduction reads: “In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net… Now I’m letting my guard down.”  Intrigued?  Us, too.

Frustratingly, we will have to wait until September to get our grips on a copy, so in the meantime, we’re counting down three inspiring reads from other successful women.
