Man Enough?

Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the Politics of Presidential Masculinity

2016 INDIES Winner
Bronze, Political Science (Adult Nonfiction)

The big story about gender in 2016 was supposed to be about Hillary Clinton and her quest to become the first woman president of the United States. Then Donald Trump’s candidacy took off in an unexpected turn. His appeal was rooted in right-wing populism and based on his performance of a can-do white masculinity that had been in decline. Activist and gender studies speaker Jackson Katz offers a paradigm-shifting analysis of the nature of the American presidency in the Trump era and beyond.
