Book Description

Timely and important, this collection focuses on the meaning of the 2016 presidential campaign and the election of Donald J. Trump as it relates to gender. Authored by scholars in political science, international studies, sociology, peace and conflict studies, psychiatry, and social work, as well as feminist activists from various backgrounds, chapters focus on campaigning for Hillary Clinton; how Trump won the election over a highly qualified female candidate; Trump’s hyper-masculine posturing; the meaning of the election for marginalized populations; the effect of the election on survivors of sexual assault; proposed policies related to women; and how to teach and parent in the era of Trump. Further, the book offers an appendix of recommended resources for persons seeking to better understand the election and its effect on gender relations in 2016 and beyond.
