Editorial Reviews

Her impressive bio doesn't do her justice. Forbes
Pat has been the connector, the spark plug, and the strategist behind more important women's events and forums than seems possible. Jane Fonda
This book is riveting history lesson, case study in fierce feminist leadership, truly useful advice from a trusted girlfriend, and radical call-to-action all rolled into one page-turning package. I inhaled Pat's life story, in large part, because I was blown away by her unshakable honesty--about power struggles at work, about men and money, about sex and violence. Apparently there's no time for fear or bullshit in your 70s. I can't wait. Courtney E. Martin, author of The New Better Off: Reinventing the American Dream
"The life and times of award-winning journalist and producer Pat Mitchell is an inspiration for all who wish to see positive change in the world . . . Pat is a tour de force whose continued advocacy for access and equal opportunities for women is to be applauded. Deborah Calmeyer, founder and CEO of Roar Africa
Named one of the "Most Powerful Women in Hollywood" by Hollywood Reporter
—Ai-jen Poo, director of the National Workers Alliance and author of The Age of Dignity
Becoming a Dangerous Woman illuminates the paths strong leaders take to tackle challenges and gain wisdom. By curating and amplifying the voices of women who have defied categorization, Pat Mitchell delivers a work that will encourage other women to find their dangerous sides. Stacey Abrams
For decades, Pat Mitchell has been on the media frontlines as an uncompromising force for good. She has used her platform to document injustices in a societal system plagued by sexism, racism, and economic inequalities. To the powers that be who are allowing human rights abuses to be exploited and overlooked, Pat Mitchell is a very dangerous woman indeed. Pat Mitchell makes being a dangerous woman a badge of honor, one that should be worn with pride. Thandie Newton
Pat is that most rare of leaders, one who is trusted by the decision makers as they now exist, and also by the future decision makers hoping to expand what exists. Gloria Steinem
Becoming a Dangerous Woman is an irresistible handbook for women who want to be powerful and show up for other women--the way Pat Mitchell has her whole life. May it inspire the dangerous woman in all of us."
“Her impressive bio doesn’t do her justice.” Forbes
