            The Politics and Policy of Underrepresentation

                      BONNIE STABILE AND AUBREY LEIGH GRANT
              The election of Donald Trump precipitated one of the largest outpourings of political
            protest on a single day in U.S. history with the 2017 March for Women. The emboldened
            #MeToo and #TimesUp movements reacted not only to the historical injustice of sexual
            offenses perpetrated upon women, but women’s associated underrepresentation in
            positions of power and public authority.
