#Trump: A Conservative Threat Offers New Opportunities for Working Class #Feminism

In the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency, there were two important mobilizations that expressed radically different views on reproductive rights. The Women’s March on Washington, which took place the day after Trump’s inauguration, has been hailed as one of the largest mobilizations in US history.

These are few thoughts from Europe.
