The epilogue discusses the volume's central themes in light of events around the 2016 presidential election. This chapter considers growth in gender equality over the last one hundred years as well as continuing aspects of gender inequality. It examines the degree to which women's influence has changed over time, particularly their increased presence in politics as well as ongoing efforts to marginalize their roles. The final chapter examines this influence in electoral politics as well as social movement activism, also exploring the ways in which politics continues to be a deeply gendered sphere of action. This epilogue returns to the rich diversity of women's engagement in political action, reminding readers of the significant insights that can emerge from an intersectional approach to understanding women's political action. The book concludes with thoughts, which must be speculative at best, of what may lie ahead for the next hundred years of women's enfranchisement.
