    How to Run Like a Girl

    How to Run Like a Girl

    States across the U.S. are racing to ban trans girls from school sports. Why? Because two teen runners in Connecticut did arguably the riskiest thing transgender athletes can do these days: They won. This episode, ESPN writer Katie Barnes and trans runner Andraya Yearwood tell us the astonishing story — and how it unleashed a tidal wave of transphobic legislation and a lawsuit that could redefine Title IX.

Podcast for Real Women

And their allies. Thank you Unladies, for giving us a voice and addressing challenging topics that many don’t acknowledge. I love the show and how clear and concise it is- and ahh, the REALNESS.

Inspiring, Enlightening, Empowering

I’ve been listening to C&C on Unladylike (and previously on SMNTY) for years. I’ve studied a chunk of feminist theory (less than a degree’s worth but more than 90% of people) and still find the material interesting and informative. They bring in experts and do their research, and cover a wide breadth of topics. A lot of seems adjacent to feminism, but they always manage to tie the main theme into feminist theory and how it really affects everyone. Many of the episodes have personally moved me as well (thank you for doing an episode on ADHD). Truly great content.
