Summary
The 2016 election year may be remembered as a year to forget, but for American women in politics and feminists alike it was unforgettably distressing-- a flash point illuminating both the true state of play for women in public life and feminist politics in the early twenty-first century. Wolf Whistle Politics is a book that tries to account for, contextualize, and even make some sense out of this trying political chapter in American history. Putting a bright light on the complex relationship between women and politics today, reflecting on what we lost, what we won, and what we can do to move forward
