Jennifer Rubin, the author of Resistance: How Women Saved Democracy from Donald Trump (William Morrow, 2021) and a Washington Post opinion writer, explains the persistent threat to American democracy and the central role women from across the political spectrum played in opposing and ultimately defeating Trump. She will discuss how American women redefined US politics and, looking ahead, will examine women’s importance to defending the rule of law and multiracial democracy.
