Summary:
"In the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election, there was shock, outrage, and, for some, satisfaction. When 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump and 94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, how can women unite as a political class in Trump's America? The misogyny, racism, and xenophobia that were features of the campaign have long been a part of American life, but many people are just now waking up to them. Can the 'nasty' among us find ways to better support and fight for one another? Here are inspiring essays from a diverse group of talented feminist writers on how we got there and what we need to do to move forward." -- Back cover.
