Such a Nasty Woman: Female Writers Respond to Trump

Many women woke up on November 9, 2016 and wondered if clocks had been set back 100 years. A man who bragged about his sexual assaults, referred to women as pigs and bimbos, and in a televised debate, called Hillary Clinton “a nasty woman,” had just been elected president.

This man has threatened to defund Planned Parenthood, and implied that military rape is to be expected. His vice president boasts of consigning Roe v. Wade “to the ash heap of history where it belongs.” It’s enough to make a female pacifist take up arms.

This panel of brave, outspoken, and articulate authors will ask some tough questions. How can women hold their ground in such a cultural recession? And what kind of vital role can female writers play during this age of ignorance and fear? Moderated by author/journalist Vanessa Hua.
