Gender and Identity in the Jigsaw Puzzle of Trump’s Zero Sum Politics
In this chapter, Margaret Walton-Roberts provides an analysis of Donald Trump through an intersectional gendered lens. In this analysis, Walton-Roberts reveals the complex role of gender in generating support for, or resistance to, “Trumpism” in America. Walton-Roberts illustrates her argument through analyzing female voting patterns, the Global Gag Rule and anti-Abortion laws, the Women’s March in the US, and other resistance coalitions structured around multiple axis of identity.
