“This collection makes explicit the connection between politics, policy, and gender on a range of feminist issues from gun violence to comedy to prison reform. We need the pointed and insightful analysis and suggestions for cultural change so that more women can assume leadership positions. The chapters are part critique and part playbook for activism. I intend to use this as a text in the college classroom, but I also look forward to sharing this with my Girl Scouts, the newest members of our feminist movements.”

– Sandra L. Faulkner, Professor of Communication and Director of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Bowling Green State University

“I do not believe there has been a more important time for research that produces answers to confounding social and cultural problems than there is today. At once incisive, unapologetic, compelling, and practical, The Politics of Gender responds to this need in impressive and useful ways.”

– Keith Berry, Department of Communication, University of South Florida, author of Bullied: Tales of Torment, Identity, and Youth

“In a tumultuous political climate, this collection deconstructs the ways in which politics remains highly gendered, and the deleterious impact that has on society. Trier-Bieniek has curated a wonderful selection of writers who call for social change and justice. This book could not be more timely.”

– Jessica Gullion, Associate Professor of Sociology at Texas Woman’s University, author of Diffractive Ethnography and Writing Ethnography
