Gina Miller to write 'rallying cry' memoir, Rise
Brexit legal challenger to write book about struggles in her work and personal life, as well as ‘offering guidance and confidence to women in particular’
Inspired by Maya Angelou’s “tone of defiance in the face of increasing hostility, hate and defamation” in the classic poem Still I Rise, anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller has written a memoir which her publisher hopes will be a “rallying cry” for other women to make their voices heard.
Rise, which will be published in August 2018, has just been sold at auction to the independent publisher Canongate. Miller, who became a public figure when she successfully challenged the UK government over its authority to trigger article 50 without parliamentary approval, will write the book with the novelist and journalist Elizabeth Day.
