ABRAMS TO PUBLISH FIRST BOOK ON THE WOMEN’S MARCH

ALL ROYALTIES WILL BE DONATED TO NONPROFITS AFFILIATED WITH THE MARCH

WHY I MARCH
Images from The Women’s March Around the World

New York, New York – February 2, 2017Today, ABRAMS announced the publication of WHY I MARCH: Images from The Women’s March Around the World (Abrams Image; February 21, 2017; $14.95; Paperback), the first photographic tribute to the largest peaceful demonstration in history. The book will come out exactly one month after five million people in more than 80 countries on all seven continents stood up to challenge the dangerous rhetoric of an administration on inauguration weekend. The book takes readers on a global tour of the marches and features colorful, inspiring photographs that were provided in great part by Getty Images, which has partnered with ABRAMS.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring this book and these images so quickly to the market in order to commemorate and confirm the energy, hope, solidarity, and strength that millions of people displayed that day. Their energy and commitment has helped motivate and mobilize our own here at ABRAMS. We’re also proud to donate all of the royalties from the sale of the book to nonprofits associated with the March in support of ongoing work and resistance,” says Michael Jacobs, president and CEO of ABRAMS.

Featuring images of people in snow gear in Antarctica, women holding “Love Trumps Hate” signs in Durban, South Africa, and little girls in the streets of New York City, WHY I MARCH is organized by continent and showcases the recurring themes of inclusion and intersectionality that the March so embodied. The book also includes an in-depth Resources Guide for activists, old and new, who are looking for next steps to keep the momentum going. This includes information on existing grassroots organizations all over the United States. WHY I MARCH will honor the movement, help raise funds and awareness, and promote future activism.
