In late October 2016, Libby Chamberlain, a young mother living in rural Maine, opened up Facebook, wrote a few words about why she felt inspired by Hillary Clinton, tagged thirty friends, and hit "create group." Thus, Pantsuit Nation, the fastest-growing Facebook group in history, was born. What was originally conceived as a small, private online site where members would post selfies of wearing pantsuits to the polls, has, in the space of eight weeks, grown to a 4 million-member strong community where stories of inspiration and connection are shared, commented upon, and discussed in open-minded, profound ways.
Now, the most beloved stories and photographs from Pantsuit Nation have been collected in the pages of a beautifully-designed, four-colour book sure to appeal to fans of Humans of New York. The facebook page has attracted media attention from outlets like the New York Times, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Refinery29, CNN, Cosmopolitan, and others and has a slew of celebrity fans including Meryl Streep, Amy Poehler, Lin Manuel-Miranda, Sheryl Sandberg, and Hillary Clinton herself. With this book, Pantsuit Nation is leaping off the screen and into the real world to inspire engagement, advocacy, political action, and small acts of every day kindness.
