When the 2016 presidential election was over, Hillary Clinton wasn't the only American woman who lost. We all did. The Trumpian assault on our rights and opportunities seems overwhelming at times. But by arming ourselves with information and focusing on the battles we can and must wage, American women will win. Ms. Nice Guy Lost tells you how. In Ms. Nice Guy Lost — Here's How Women Can Win, women's personal stories are intertwined with facts, figures and news reports that remind us how far we'd progressed before November 8, 2016. They illustrate how much we've lost since that day, thanks to the efforts of Donald Trump and the GOP to roll back progress in multiple arenas of women's lives. And they outline what we must do today and tomorrow to regain our rightful place in American society.
