    She Quit Homosexuality. Now, She’s Helping Others Do Likewise.

    She Quit Homosexuality. Now, She’s Helping Others Do Likewise.

    Elizabeth Woning began questioning her sexuality when she was 16. By the time she was in her 30s, she says, she was "stereotypically butch.” 
    But after an experience at a local church, Woning said she began to question what lesbianism meant to her. 
    “I recognized that it gave meaning and purpose to my life,” Woning said. "… And so, before the Lord, I began analyzing what that meant and why it was so challenging for me, such a letdown, to be just a woman.”
    Woning spent about 18 months trying to understand “the character of God and where I fit in that,” she said. “And the Lord was able to displace my sense of belonging as a lesbian with my sense of belonging as a daughter of God.” 
    Today, Woning co-leads the Changed Movement, a Christian organization that works with people who are seeking to leave the homosexual lifestyle or who are struggling with same-sex attraction.
    Woning joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to share her story and to talk about the LGBTQ agenda. 
    Also on today’s show, we discuss tennis star Naomi Osaka’s decision to drop out of the 2021 French Open. And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”

    She Won Her School Board Race by Opposing Critical Race Theory

    She Won Her School Board Race by Opposing Critical Race Theory

    Hannah Smith ran for school board in her Texas community on a platform opposing critical race theory. Smith won, earning nearly 70% of the vote last month. 
    “[T]he community turnout at this election really sent a message to our district and gave us a mandate going in to say, 'We don't want critical race theory in our schools,'" Smith says on the "Problematic Women” podcast.
    As a lawyer defending religious liberty, a wife, and a mother of four school-age children, Smith says, she was enjoying life and had plenty to keep her busy. But she felt compelled to run for school board to try to stop the agenda of critical race theory, which she says would “radically change our school district.” 
    Now a school board member in Southlake, Texas, just outside Dallas, Smith says she is committed to keeping far-left ideology out of classrooms. 
    Smith joins the show to discuss how critical race theory is making its way into more schools across the country and what her priorities are as a new school board member.
    Also on today's show, we talk about Pride Month with Kelsey Bolar, a senior news producer at The Daily Signal and a senior policy analyst at Independent Women's Forum. And as always, we'll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.

    What Being a New Congresswoman Is Really Like: Rep. Kat Cammack Explains

    What Being a New Congresswoman Is Really Like: Rep. Kat Cammack Explains

    From fighting against the far-left agenda, to policy review sessions early in the morning and late at night, to baseball practice with colleagues, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., says her first six months as a House member have been anything but boring. 
    There is a "side of being a member of Congress that a lot of people don't get to see," Cammack says. "They don't get to see you sitting at your desk with curlers in your hair. Having your second cup of coffee at 5 o'clock in the morning, trying to dig into the legislation."
    Cammack came to the House with a clear agenda to further policies that benefit residents of her state, and despite opposition from the left, her commitment to implement practical policy solutions remains steadfast.
    The Florida congresswomen, at 33 the youngest Republican woman in Congress, joins "Problematic Women” to discuss the behind-the-scenes reality of being a U.S. lawmaker, her recent trip to the southern border, and her progress on some key policy priorities.

    Fight to Hold Andrew Cuomo Accountable 'Feels Like Upward Climb,' Janice Dean Says

    Fight to Hold Andrew Cuomo Accountable 'Feels Like Upward Climb,' Janice Dean Says

    Janice Dean began speaking out against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo when she saw that media outlets weren't holding the Democratic governor accountable for what was happening in New York during the COVID-10 pandemic.
    Dean, senior meteorologist at Fox News Channel, lost both her mother-in-law and father-in-law to the disease in New York nursing homes. While thousands of elderly men and women were dying of COVID-19, Cuomo was "celebrating himself," she says.
    The New York governor was "on CNN with his brother [anchor Chris Cuomo] joking around, while thousands of people were dying," Dean says. "Body bags [were] literally piling up outside of nursing homes and storage facilities and storage trucks."
    Dean joins the "Problematic Women" podcast to discuss Cuomo and whether he ultimately will be held accountable for his handling of New York nursing homes during the pandemic. She also discusses her new book. "Make Your Own Sunshine: Inspiring Stories of People Who Find Light in Dark Times," and why she aims to find the good in every challenging situation of life.
    Also on today's show, we discuss a Florida high school that chose to digitally adjust students' yearbook photos to make them more appropriate. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.

    After Losing to Male Athletes, College Runner Fights for Fairness in Women's Sports

    After Losing to Male Athletes, College Runner Fights for Fairness in Women's Sports

    Mary Kate Marshall fell in love with track and cross-country in high school. 
    Running “gives me so much confidence,” Marshall said. Now an athlete at Idaho State University, Marshall is fighting for Idaho’s Fairness in Women’s Sports Act—and for every woman's and girl’s right to compete on a level playing field. 
    The Fairness in Women’s Sports Act prohibits biological men who "identify" as women from competing in women’s sports. Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the legislation in March 2020, but the bill was quickly challenged by the American Civil Liberties Union. Alliance Defending Freedom, a Christian legal nonprofit, represents Marshall and fellow Idaho State University track athlete Madison Kenyon in their efforts to reinstate the act and protect women’s sports. 
    Marshall and Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christiana Holcomb join the "Problematic Women" podcast to explain the significance of the court battle for Idaho and for women’s sports across the nation. 
    Also on today’s show, Melanie Israel, a policy analyst with the DeVos Center for Religion & Civil Society at The Heritage Foundation, explains what you need to know about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to hear arguments in a case that could upend the abortion precedent set by Roe v. Wade. And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week."

    Abortion Isn't Essential Health Care. This OB-GYN Explains Why

    Abortion Isn't Essential Health Care. This OB-GYN Explains Why

    Pro-life advocates worry that an abortion-friendly political agenda has worked itself into the medical branch of obstetrics and gynecology. 
    Now, POB-GYN medical professionals who are pro-life are taking a stand for women and babies as they seek to uphold the sanctity of all human life and push back on the narrative that abortion is health care.
    "The fact that 85% of women's health care specialists don't perform abortion, to me tells you everything you need to know that abortion is not essential healthcare because if it was, you wouldn't have only 15% of OB-GYNs performing it," Dr. Christina Francis, chairwoman of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, says.
    Francis joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss her group's mission and how the abortion agenda infiltrated the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

    Also on today’s show, Janae Stracke, grassroots director for Heritage Action for America, breaks down what's happening across America regarding election reform and new voting laws. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.

The ONLY podcast for me.

As a Christian Conservative Republican woman I have trouble finding podcasts, music, news and TV programs that aren’t filth. I only want to absorb information that 1. Doesn’t go against my Lord and 2. That isn’t liberal or democratic nonsense. This podcast has everything I need. Intelligence, no God bashing and Conservative values. Thanks ladies! I needed you in my life!

All conjecture no substance

I decided to scroll back to the first episode that was listed. The initial topic was on an article on why conservative women defend sexist men, citing the women who fiercely defended Roger Allies.

The arguments aren’t really thought out or informative. As someone who was raised a fundamental baptist and in a Fox News only household, the arguments are very weak. The initial point being that the writer is “throwing conservative women under the bus herself.” Then the secondary points were how articles like this “don’t even consult conservative women” but that’s not the point of the issue. Women like Kimberly Gouyfuile (Don Jr GF) were fierce defenders of Roger Allies. That’s no secret. Instead of addressing the issue head on, they wash it as “There are disgusting men everywhere.” However, if one were to actually do their research, sexual assault laws are part of the workplace because of a spearhead by feminists. Had feminists not fought for these protections, as conservatives tend to use it as why women shouldn’t be in the workplace to begin with, they wouldn’t be law today. Women like Kimberly, who rally against the “Feminist Agenda” directly benefit from this. All women do. Look at how many women vehemently defend Trump despite court documents showing he raped a 13 yr old girl and was complicit in the sex trafficking ring with Jeffrey Epstein. Why else would he wish Ghislaine Maxwell “I wish her well”?

The rest of the podcast was conjecture. The usual: Birth control, Planned Parenthood is evil, the Ferber method. Ironically, they also bring up statistics that “harm the black community” as if two white women know, let alone care about issues facing the Black Community. Have they donated time? Have they sat down with black women who are doing work to dismantle racism and lack of equity in their communities? Nope. But they comfortably use the black community as their “research” against PP.

These women aren’t problematic, they’re the status quo. Their views uphold long standing beliefs that actual problematic women had to fight against just for the right to vote, domestic violence laws, sexual assault laws and other recognitions.

Ridiculous premise

Come on! Really? Why don’t we just step back a few hundred years. This is disgusting.
