“I didn’t have any real income, I had a huge hole in my life,” said Ms. Jones, who lives in an apartment in Santa Monica with her husband, who has autism.
She and her husband have three kids and she said they had trouble making ends meet.
“I was in the midst of trying to make a living, and I had no idea how I was going to pay for it.”
Her father died in 2006, and her mother died of cancer in 2008.
“My father’s death was a really hard time for me, because I’m the type of person who’s very sensitive to the people around me, especially people who are in positions of power,” she said.
“That’s one of the things that’s really important to me, that I can still see them through my eyes and I can tell them that I’m a better person for having that.”
The film follows Ms. Davis as she becomes involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement, starting with the protests in New York City in 2011.
“It’s not something that I thought would ever happen, but the power of the Internet and the technology that I had was something that could bring us all together,” Ms. Moore said.
She then moved to Silicon Valley, where she worked as an engineer at Google, and eventually started her own startup.
In 2016, she started working at Dow Jones in Los Angeles and was fired after the company began receiving complaints that Ms. Dow had been harassing customers.
Ms. Moore, who is Jewish, said she had an opportunity to learn from the Holocaust.
During her time at Dow, Ms. Milligan was an executive director of the American Jewish Committee and later served as the director of international initiatives at the National Council of La Raza, a national civil rights organization.
After leaving the company, Ms: Jones says she started writing a memoir about her life.
As for the title, Ms Moore said she’s still looking for the right phrase for it, which is a reference to a line from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “I have seen more women than men in the world, but I will not tell you the number.”
Ms Jones said that while her book was a reaction to the Trump administration, she hopes it can inspire people to take action in their own communities and be a voice for the voiceless.
“It will have an impact on people who have been disenfranchised for so long and who have no voice in the public arena,” she told ABC News.
