What is the state of women’s activism in US politics in the Trump era? And can it ensure a post-Trump era in the forthcoming US elections?
In a webinar from EA’s partner The Clinton Institute of University College Dublin, the questions are taken on by Professors Melissa Deckman, Sherry Linkon, and Diane Negra.
The panelists start with the effect of Trump’s election and Presidency, with women learning to “navigate local politics” including gun violence, climate change, and the issues raised by the Black Lives Matter movement. They look at the role of class in women’s political mobility and identity, including the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic and the issue of health care.
And after Trump? The discussion considers post-feminism, Kamala Harris as Vice President, and the impact of a conservative majority on the Supreme Court.
