Women’s Lived Experiences During the Trump Era
Donald Trump is an affront to the entire feminine ethos of caring. He is the ultimate self-aggrandizing, toxic male who will always act on his own behalf. This is his pathology. And by extension, he is a public health danger to women, emotionally. Fury: Women’s Lived Experiences During the Trump Era brings together a diverse community of women who reveal the impact Donald Trump’s behavior, words, and presidency has had on each one of them, how each is confronting the problem, and how she is fighting back.
Most readers will identify with more than one of these powerfully authentic and revealing personal essays representing a refreshingly broad representation of viewpoints. And that is exactly why Fury matters: it will help the reader feel less alone, work through some of their own hurt and pain, and formulate a plan for what they can do to bring about an end to the Trump presidency. Fury is a cohesive narrative of the times we live in, and chronicles a unique chapter in history for the edification of generations of women and allies to follow.

Praise for FURY
“If ever a book met the historic moment, it is this one. In an era where women are fighting oppression and sexual victimization, we have elevated unapologetic toxic sexual predators to both the White House and the Supreme Court. The authors in this collection bring us inside their workplaces and homes to show how this kind of politics has affected the lives of real people. If we survive the Trump era—by no means a forgone conclusion– we will have women to thank.”
– John Gartner, Ph.D. author of, In Search of Bill Clinton: A Psychological Biography and Founder of Duty To Warn
“Women are still, in 2019, discouraged from viewing the world or politics or our surroundings too much as ‘women.’ We’re discouraged from so-called ‘identity politics,’ and made to feel silly if we feel personal grief at the idea of a sexual predator in the White House, the Supreme Court, and probably every other branch of government. This collection gives a defiant middle finger to that idea. In it, women discuss how their gender, racial, and sexual identities have all come into play in their experiences of the Trump presidency, and move quickly past Trump himself to the systemic failures he represents: patriarchy, white supremacy, and toxic masculinity. It’s not a wallowing, but a reckoning. An acknowledgement and a claiming of righteous anger, the goal of which is clear: claiming power and building new systems, and a better world. You’ll feel sadness, anger, empathy and more reading these essays, but ultimately you’ll come away feeling heard and empowered to fight.”
– Amy Westervelt, author of Forget “Having It All”: How America Messed Up Motherhood-and How to Fix It.
“These are thunderbolts thrown at the ultimate lightning rod in a cultural struggle that goes back to the dawn of human civilization. If only Donald Trump were just a metaphor, or justifiable outrage able to sway willful ignorance. A treat to meet these women in their fury.”
– John Sayles, author of Yellow Earth
