The Woman Card: Feminism and the 2016 Election

The historic candidacy of Hillary Clinton meets a Supreme Court vacancy and a presumptive Republican nominee with overwhelming unfavorables amongst women—suddenly feminism is front and center this election season. Be it wage inequality, women’s health, or paid family leave, many issues important to women at both ends of the economic divide are hotly contested this election. Meanwhile, bathroom wars rage as the fight for transgender rights goes mainstream. Dinner table wars, too, as boomer women and their millennial daughters disagree on Clinton, Sanders, and what being a feminist means when it comes to the vote.
