51%: Women and the Future of Politics


I’m honored to be quoted in 51%: Women and the Future of Politics.


I’m quoted at the start of Chapter 11:

To understand how women are systematically denied power, we must start by examining who is creating and policing the boundaries for who gets included as a woman. As long as US policy and social customs are organized around these boundaries, a segregationist mindset will permeate so pervasively that the iniquities it brings about for women will seem “natural” without closer examination.

– Andrea James, American writer, film producer and director, and LGBT rights activist
