Drawing on theories of identity construction and deconstruction, the author examines what it means to be a feminist in the contemporary American political arena. The author explores the boundaries implicitly created by identity categories to uncover feminists’ perceptions of whether or not Hillary Clinton is truly a feminist political candidate. This book provides an application of these theories to the contemporary feminist movement in the United States.
