“Day offers a simpler remedy for fixing healthcare. If we want a healthcare system that’s more humane, more practical, and gets the important things right, turn to women. Read it and let’s get going.”
—Andy Slavitt, former administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

“‘Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated,’ said Donald Trump. Actually, many of us did and do know, especially Rosemarie Day, whose new book, Marching Toward Coverage, is a breath of fresh enlightenment over a murky and complex topic. Her analysis is sharp and powered by exceptional passion and insight. Read it to be informed and mobilized.”
—John McDonough, Harvard Chan School of Public Health

“Day’s remarkable book succeeds on two fronts. First, grounded in a deep understanding of the historical and political moments that have shaped American healthcare, it makes an accessible, straightforward argument for universal healthcare in America. Second, it makes the compelling and provocative argument that women are disproportionately disadvantaged by our poor healthcare system and can represent the solution. The book is a primer in healthcare and an activist call to action in one, a must-read for anyone interested in better health for all in the United States.”
—Sandro Galea, Dean of the School of Public Health at Boston University

“A healthy nation is a secure and safe nation; healthcare is the ultimate homeland security issue because it addresses our vulnerabilities at home and our strength in the homeland. Women have been at the forefront of our efforts to reduce risks in our communities—from gun violence to climate change—and they are the drivers for building healthy and sustainable homes, communities, and, ultimately, nations. In this indispensable book, Rosemarie Day makes the case for why activism by women for our health and healthcare is the path forward for a resilient nation.”
—Juliette Kayyem, former assistant secretary, Department of Homeland Security, and author of Security Mom

Marching Toward Coverage addresses one of the issues that matters most to women and moms in our country today: protecting our healthcare. We are raising our voices, sharing our stories, and fighting to protect our coverage and stop the price gouging that is pushing prescription drug prices out of reach for so many families. Women will indeed shape the future of healthcare in this country.”
—Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner, executive director and CEO of MomsRising
