Sarah Michael Hollenbeck considers women with disabilities; Jill Filipovic points out the plight of women in Africa after Trump’s “gag rule” prohibited U. funding to any foreign organization that provides abortions or advocates for abortion rights; Melissa Arjona writes about Mexican women living in South Texas; Collier Meyerson and Zerlina Maxwell consider black feminism.
Also represented are gay and trans women, such as Meredith Talusan, who asserts that “Clinton’s loss, despite the fact that she was exceedingly better qualified than Trump, mirrors the way trans women and femmes are marginalized in post-Trump feminism, despite our significantly greater experience of fighting oppression” compared to mainstream white women, who, several writers note, dominated the women’s march after Trump’s inauguration.
Now she doesn't need him at all, and that's a problem.

Mukhopadhyay (Outdated: Why Dating is Ruining Your Love Life, 2011), senior editorial director of Culture and Identities at Mic, and Harding (Women’s Resource Center/Cornell Univ.; Asking for It: The Alarming Rise of Rape Culture—and What We Can Do About It, 2015, etc.) gather a diverse collection of essayists to respond to the challenges faced by women in Trump’s America.
