As the 2024 race for President heats up and Donald Trump continues to make headlines, it’s time to take a clear-eyed look at his legacy and how it has impacted women’s lives. A panel of experts, including acclaimed journalist Nina Burleigh, The Nation magazine’s national affairs correspondent Joan Walsh, and political strategist Celinda Lake, will explore such topics as:

  • Did the Great Women’s March in Washington, DC, the day after Trump’s inauguration, have any lasting impact?
  • How have the Trump Years affected the “women’s movement?”
  • Is the Me Too movement dead?
  • Has an increasingly hostile and partisan environment for elected women, reduced women’s power?
  • Why are teenage girls in crisis and how does that relate to the Trump presidency?
  • What role does social media and internet porn play in the above situation?
  • Will we ever see an American woman President?
