That's when we need to find it within ourselves not to turn away and hide in our bunkers, but to rise up and be even more vocal . . . If we hide, when we emerge from our hiding places the world might be transformed into a hostile, alien environment in which we have no say at all and where the things we love and value no longer exist.' Unapologetic, businesslike and impatient to make a difference -- AFUA HIRSCH * * Guardian * * This book is essential for any woman in a male-dominated industry . . . [Miller] is a woman of true grit and courage, of whom we should all - whatever our views on Brexit - be proud * * Sunday Times * * A remarkable story of a remarkable woman, whose courage one can only admire, whatever your politics -- RACHEL JOHNSON * * Mail on Sunday * * Gina Miller is one of the most exciting breakthrough leaders of the last few years. Her unbreakable courage in the face of danger has been an example to us all, but this courage was not developed overnight. Hers is a life of triumph over adversity and fighting for what she believes to be right. The words in these pages will empower and inspire anyone who wants to make a difference. Change happens when individuals speak truth to power and Gina shows us how in Rise -- JUNE SARPONG Miller's story turns out to be an unusual and impressive one * * Observer * * Essential reading * * Stylist * * A story of optimism and courage, which should inspire . . . and also shame those who preached freedom but showed intolerance -- ALAN RUSBRIDGER Gina Miller's wisdom and courage has revealed the truth in an historic battle for democracy - reading her life story in Rise makes me admire her more than ever -- VANESSA REDGRAVE Gina Miller's book reflects the extraordinary woman she is - strong, resourceful, principled and brilliant - a heroine for our times -- BARONESS HELENA KENNEDY, QC Miller really is an exceptional person * * Independent * * Gina Miller was the lead claimant in the 2016 constitutional legal case against the UK Government over triggering Article 50 and the sole claimant in 2019 regarding Prime Minister Boris Johnson's attempt to prorogue - close down - Parliament for five weeks. Born and raised in Guyana, she went to boarding school in England at the age of eleven and went on to study Law at the University of East London, then Marketing at the University of North London. In 2009, she and her husband Alan Miller co-founded SCM Direct, a disruptive investment management company. She has three children: Lucy-Ann, Luca and Lana.
