My Moment is a collection of essays of a diverse group of more than 100 women, reflecting on “the moment they realized they were ready to fight for themselves,” according to the book’s description:
“Over and over again, when told ‘no’ these women said ‘yes’ to themselves. This hugely inspiring, beautiful book will move people of all ages and make them feel less alone. More than the sum of its parts, My Moment is also a handbook for young women (or any woman) making their way through the world.”
The book includes essays by Gloria Steinem, Lena Waithe, Joanna Gaines, Beanie Feldstein, Cynthia Erivo, and Billie Jean King, among others, in addition to McEntire and Carlile. Author credits include actress and singer Kristin Chenoweth, award-winner Kathy Najimy, Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee Linda Perry, ‘90s country trailblazer Chely Wright, and entertainment exec Lauren Blitzer.
“I am honored to be a part of Kristin Chenoweth's powerful [My Moment] book featuring stories from amazing women like Kristin, Joanna Gaines, Brandi Carlile and more!” McEntire wrote on social media on Tuesday (September 6), flashing a big smile as she held up the book. Chenoweth replied in the comments: “Love you reebs!!!!”
“When was the first time YOU fought for yourself? Hear the answer from 106 incredible women from all walks of life in [My Moment],” Chenoweth said. “Beyond proud to have co-curated and contributed to this book.”
