Feminism Paperback Edition
I received an uncorrected, paperback edition of Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America edited by Samhita Mukhopadhyay & Kate Harding  through the Goodreads Giveaways program for Free!!

Below is my honest, unbiased review of Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America edited by Samhita Mukhopadhyay & Kate Harding.

I was really excited to read this feminist, nonfiction book when it arrived in the mail!! I am a feminist and I enjoy reading a wide variety of feminist works. I am not a Trump supporter or fan, so felt that it was important to read this timely collection of feminist essays. I found Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America to be an inspiring and empowering collection of essays to read as the essays highlight important topics/issues effecting women and minorities.

I enjoyed reading Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America very much. This anthology contains 23 essays, written by 23 diverse feminist writers, like Jill Filipovic, Katha Pollitt, Cheryl Strayed, Rebecca Solnit, Jessica Valenti, Sarah Jaffe, and many more.

My personal favorite essays from Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America include the following:

1. "Beyond the Pussy Hats" by Katha Pollitt
2. "Advice to Grace in Ghana: Trump, the Global Gag Rule, and the Terror of Misinformation" by Jill Filipovic
3. "The Pathology of Donald Trump" by Sady Doyle
4. "Nasty Native Women" by Mary Kathryn Nagle
5. "Farewell to Meritocracy" by Jamia Wilson
6. "Trust Black Women" by Zerlina Maxwell
7. "How to Build a Movement" by Alicia Garza

I pretty much liked all the essays included in Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America with one exception... The only essay I didn't care for was "Country Crock" by Samantha Irby.

The following is a basic summary for Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America edited by Samhita Mukhopadhyay & Kate Harding from Amazon:
When 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump and 94 percent of black women voted for Hillary Clinton, how can women unite in Trump’s America? Nasty Women includes inspiring essays from a diverse group of talented women writers who seek to provide a broad look at how we got here and what we need to do to move forward.
I am giving Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America edited by Samhita Mukhopadhyay & Kate Harding a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars.

As far as my 2018 reading goals go, Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump's America is the 1st of 12 books I plan to read that I received for FREE as part of a giveaway.
