Get to know clubwomen of yore, who were so much more than the white-gloved-ladies-who-lunch that they've been reduced to. Thanks to our presenting sponsor SAP.

Engaging and insightful

Alexis Coe brings history to life in this “podcast about women who were too bad for your textbooks.” It gets intense so would recommend listening without any young kids around. Every episode is very well researched and presented - the Silvia Plath episode was my favorite and I hope more episodes will drop soon!
