After more than 20 years in a male-dominated industry, often reporting on the world’s most powerful men, veteran journalist and CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin spent two days back-to-back covering the 2017 presidential inauguration and the historic Women’s March in D.C. The experience changed her perspective and led to the question: what happens when women huddle? Baldwin wanted to learn from women who were forming change movements, or who were supporting each other in the workplace whether it be the courthouse, a Hollywood writer’s room, or on the sports field. But most of all, she wanted to learn what happens when women harness each others’ power by gathering together—either in person or virtually—to huddle.
Baldwin’s new book, Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power is a blend of journalism and personal narrative examining how women have come together in a wide variety of times and places, to provide each other with support, empowerment, inspiration, and the strength to solve problems or enact meaningful change.
Fascinated by this huddle phenomenon, Baldwin used her journalistic curiosity to explore:
Along the way, readers learn about Baldwin’s personal journey of growing up in the South during a time of relative “huddle drought” and climbing the ladder of the male-dominated television news industry.
Brooke Baldwin is a Peabody Award finalist and news anchor at CNN. She is also the creator and host of CNN's Digital series “American Woman,” which focuses on the stories of trailblazing women who have broken barriers in their fields and are now helping other women do the same. Huddle is her first book.
