Rebecca Traister, politics and gender writer for Salon, explores the influence women had on the 2008 presidential election. The author argues that the election was a watershed moment for women in politics as the left and the right were forced to contend with questions of feminism and sexism. From Hilary Clinton’s campaign for the Democratic nomination and her debates with Barck Obama to the decision to name Sarah Palin the Republican vice presidential nominee and her ideas on feminism. Rebecca Traister discussed her book at Politics & Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., and responded to questions from members of the audience.
