Interview With Rebecca Traister

Illustration by Sarah Karnasiewicz

Rebecca Traister is a senior editor at who writes about women in media, politics and entertainment from a feminist perspective. Her new book, Big Girls Don’t Cry: The Election That Changed Everything For American Women, is being released tomorrow as a hardback and an ebook. I plan to get my hands on a copy as soon as possible, for two reasons: 1) I really like the way Traister thinks and writes; and 2) I believe this will be an important book not only for feminists, but for anyone who is interested in American politics.

Below is a video of Traister talking about some of the issues she deals with in the book: also just published Curtis Sittenfeld’s  interview with Traister about the book, which you can read here.
