Why do white women vote for Trump? Race, Gender, Space, and Electoral Politics

The Feminist Futures Initiative
Facilitating Intergenerational Collaborative Research with Public Impact

The big feminist question that came out of the 2016 election was: why did 53% of white women vote for Donald Trump? Our panel of experts on race, gender, and politics will address what we know and don’t know about white women’s voting patterns in the past, present, and looking to the future.
