Nasty Women

Kate Harding and Samhita Mukhopadhyay, eds.


A frank look at feminism, resistance, and revolution in Trump’s America, Nasty Women (Picador, Oct. 2017) features sharp, inspiring essays by writers (including Cheryl Strayed, Alicia Garza, Jessica Valenti, Samantha Irby, Rebecca Solnit, Zerlina Maxwell, and Meredith Talusan) who consider how we got here and what we need to do to move forward. Nicole’s original essay “All-American” is included in this anthology.

Praise for Nasty Women:

“Although its title brings back memories of a more hopeful time, editors Samhita Mukhopadhyay and Kate Harding have crafted a collection of viewpoints aimed at piercing the fug of misogyny and racism that has held sway after the 2016 election. Writers . . . hold forth on how to survive Trump’s America, and raise others up along the way.” ―

“A searing and urgent collection . . . The writers are emotionally generous as they meditate on this pivotal moment in American history. The 2016 election marked a deeply personal shift in the tides of hope for so many. This book invites readers to converse, comfort, and hold one another accountable in the hope of igniting radical, intersectional change.” ―Booklist (starred review)

“Strong, thoughtful, and angry voices ring out for resistance, empathy, and solidarity.” ―Kirkus
