Gender and Power
Karen Hinton shares an insider's view of what it’s like to be a woman in the newsroom, the halls of Congress and the highest reaches of American political power. She writes of the toxic brew of ego, entitlement, and “bro-culture” that is especially difficult for women to navigate in politics. She reveals how certain well-known men create a public image as champions of women’s rights and equality, but behind closed doors use gender domination to assert their authority. Known for never ducking a fight, Hinton was at the peak of her career in 2018 when a catastrophic brain injury propelled her into the battle of her life. Emerging from a coma, learning to walk, talk and write again, she was determined to “speak up, not shut up” on issues involving women, men and power. She served as press secretary to Andrew Cuomo when he was federal Housing Secretary and later to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. She is a regular contributor to the New York Daily News.
