From the author of the viral Teen Vogue article 'Donald Trump is Gaslighting America' comes this powerful examination of fourth wave feminism, and a re-imagining of an equitable democracy built out of the untapped potential of young people.

IN NOVEMBER 2016, MANY PEOPLE WOKE UP TO A WORLD THEY DIDN'T RECOGNIZE: A NEW PRESIDENT WAS IN POWER. TWENTY-FOUR HOUR NEWS COVERAGE AND SOCIAL MEDIA UNFOLDED LIKE A HORROR FILM. ALL AT ONCE, EVERYTHING CHANGED.
