While numerous non-fiction works have been published in recent years detailing political life behind the scenes of the Trump administration, none have focused exclusively on the experience of women. Join Charis in celebrating the new collection, Fury: Women's Lived Experiences During the Trump Era, with local contributors Jessica Handler, Sarah Einstein, and Kerry Neville. Fury brings together a diverse community of women who reveal the impact Donald Trump’s behavior, words, and presidency has had on each one of them, how each is confronting the problem, and how she is fighting back. Fury is a cohesive narrative of the times we live in and chronicles a unique chapter in history for the edification of generations of women and allies to follow.
Most readers will identify with more than one of these powerfully authentic and revealing personal essays representing a refreshingly broad representation of viewpoints. And that is exactly why Fury matters: it will help the reader feel less alone, work through some of their own hurt and pain, and formulate a plan for what they can do to bring about an end to the Trump presidency. Fury is a cohesive narrative of the times we live in, and chronicles a unique chapter in history for the edification of generations of women and allies to follow.

Donald Trump is an affront to the entire feminine ethos of caring. He is the ultimate self-aggrandizing, toxic male who will always act on his own behalf. This is his pathology.
