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 danger to public health, particularly the health of women.

Fury: Women’s Lived Experiences During the Trump Era brings together a diverse community of women who reveal the impact of Donald Trump’s behavior, words, and presidency and how each is confronting the problem and fighting back. 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.
