Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America

Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America - Rebecca Solnit, Katha Pollitt, Randa Jarrar, Kate Harding, Samhita Mukhopadhyay, Sarah Jaffe, Samantha Irby, Sarah Hepola, Jill Filipovic, Nicole Chung, Sarah Hollenbeck, Meredith Talusan I received an eGalley of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

"Nasty Woman" became a feminist rallying cry brought about after (and during) the Third Presidential Debate of 2016. It's bold, angry, and kind of fun. But on Election Night, many women watched in horror and heartbreak as DJT was elected President and they feared what this new administration meant for them. NASTY WOMEN is a chorus of diverse voices and experiences: Immigrant, native, women with disabilities, queer and trans women, all with various ethnicities and religious adherence. No issue is unrelated in feminism, and the reflections of each writer address the multitude of causes worthy of our time. By the last page, one thing is clear: We need a multifaceted, intersectional, INCLUSIVE feminist movement, and all hands are on deck to resist further damage to our democracy.
