"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.

This collection of essays is so diverse and, as a result, there are many different perspectives on the presidential election and the aftermath. Some essays spoke to me more than others, but the whole book was enlightening and worth reading.

[Deconstructing Fakery: Note the description - - and I have heard this repeatedly on CNN, et cetera, states: // When 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump and 94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, . . . \\
Except, 53 percent did not vote, so how would that be possible? It wasn't - - since the majority percentage of NON-Black women did indeed vote Trump, that is, the majority percentage of women voters - - and the majority of Black women voters did indeed vote for HRC, but note 94 percent. Note the major discrepancy - - and I voted Green Party, so I claim neutrality.
Just like endless so-called reporters reported falsely on the murder of Frank Olson, ONLY ONE Real News reporter, Bob Coen, actually did the due diligence and actually honestly reported the FACTS. Yes, we have long lived in the Fake News Era!]
I haven't read this book yet, but look forward to it. There is a clarification I would make on the demographics in the description, as I became interested in examining presidential after-election demographics after the nasty and vitriolic shyster founder of Firedog Lake blog site challenged me on her false belief that the vote for Ralph Nader cost Gore the state of Florida in 2000 [in actuality, the fact that more democrats went for Bush then Nader cost Gore that state - - plus the Hanging Chad Affair, Mrs. Olson's secret meetings with the factory where they were made - - and so many voters being kicked off the rolls using ChoicePoint data lists - - when Richard Armitage and that Vietnamese-American author of the PATRIOT Act sat upon its board].
The first largest group which helped Trump into the White house was {1} non-Black women, meaning white, Hispanic, Asian, Near Eastern, Arabic and Jewish women; {2} including women and men in this group, employers of undocumented workers [don't ask me why]; {3} Evangelicals; and {4} high-middle-class and high class [economically speaking] males, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, et cetera.
