Gina Miller came to prominence when she brought one of the most significant constitutional cases ever to be heard in the British Supreme Court, successfully challenging the UK government's authority to trigger Article 50. In her memoir Rise, Miller draws on a lifetime of fighting injustice to demonstrate that sometimes just one person can make a difference.

“I've always believed in standing up for what I think is right. I've always believed in speaking up when other voices are silent. I've always believed in refusing to be cowed by those who shout over you, who want you to go away, who think that just by dragging you through the mud, you will break.”
