The Women's March: Notes from the Field
An immediate question for scholars of – and activists in – the women’s movement is whether it will be able to mobilize a new generation activists to re-fight battles that were seemingly won long ago. The January 21st Women’s March on Washington was a significant first effort to mobilize women as women in the Trump era.
In this talk, Professor Michael Heaney (Organizational Studies and Political Science) will present preliminary findings from surveys of participants at the Women’s March on Washington, and discuss his larger research project on grassroots women’s movements in the U.S.
