(p.135) Epilogue
Big Sister

Erin M. Kempker

University of Illinois Press

The epilogue explores how conspiracy exploded onto the national political scene in the 2016 presidential election cycle with the candidacy of Donald Trump. The prevalence of conspiracy belief in contemporary American is explored, as well as the effect conspiracy belief and conspiracism have on public perceptions of government and politics. The epilogue concludes by returning the focus to women’s politics and how conspiracy belief adds even more variety to the already large number of differences that separate American women’s politics and women’s worldviews.
