NEW YORK (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton are teaming up for "The Book of Gutsy Women," honoring everyone from scientist Marie Curie to climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Simon & Schuster announced Tuesday that the book will come out Oct. 1. It's the first time the former secretary of state and presidential candidate has written a book with her daughter. Each has published several previous books, including Hillary Clinton's "What Happened" and Chelsea Clinton's "She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World."

Hillary Clinton says in a statement that "Gutsy Women" was a "continuation" of conversations she has with her daughter. Chelsea Clinton added that the women in their book were defined by a "fierce optimism" that they could make a difference.
