- Story Text: A few hundred fans attended a Thursday (October 3) book signing for Hillary and Chelsea Clinton's book, "The Book of Gutsy Women."
The Clintons hosted the signing at a Barnes & Noble in the Union Square section of Manhattan.
Clinton, the first woman to be the nominee of a major U.S. political party, lost to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.
A few pro-Trump protesters stationed themselves outside of the bookstore. They chanted, "Lock Her Up."
Clinton decided against running in the 2020 election, and has yet to announce an endorsement.
Her fans at the event still see a role for her in politics.
""Well I think Hillary as an adviser would be wonderful," said New York retiree, Randye Ringler.
She's also served as U.S. Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady throughout her long political career.
The book profiles 100 "women with the courage to stand up to the status quo, ask hard questions, and get the job done," according to publisher, Simon & Schuster.
The Clintons have been making the rounds this week promoting their book. In interviews they have shared their support for impeachment to proceed against U.S. President Donald Trump, especially in light of the latest revelations regarding Ukraine.
Their husband, and father, Bill Clinton was impeached back in 1998 for obstruction of justice among other charges relating to testimony he gave about an affair with intern, Monica Lewinsky.
For her part, Clinton has said in interviews that the gutsiest move she's made in her life was in fact personal - staying in her marriage after her husband admitted to the affair with Lewinsky.
Among the figures profiled in the book are civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, fellow First Ladies Betty Ford and Eleanor Roosevelt, writer Rachel Carson and activists, Harriet Tubman, Malala Yousafzai and Greta Thunberg.
The book is being rolled out in bookstores and is available on various digital platforms. (Production by: Dan Fastenberg and Soren Larson)
