We're Gia and Layla. And as strong women, we love to celebrate other strong women. We talk about the badass women we never learned about in history class. Some women you might know by name, but you may not know their whole story. Some women you may not have heard of at all, but have shaped the course of history. We are here to bring all these stories to you. So grab a glass of your favorite drink and celebrate the work that these amazing women have done because they f***ing did that!

I LOVE THIS PODCAST! Where has this been all of my life?!
Not only are Gia and Layla such funny, entertaining hosts, but this podcast is so necessary in life. I can’t believe I haven’t heard about most of these women featured. I highly recommend Episode 5 where we listen to the most incredible stories about Olivia de Havilland. As an actress, I was shocked I didn’t know more about her. I also loved Episode 10 and learning about Lyudmila Pavlichenko (double checked that spelling) who is one of the most successful snipers in history! Why aren’t we seeing a movie about her? In that episode, we also learn about Dr. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee, a suffragist and the first Chinese woman to earn her Ph.D in the US. This is such a must listen for anyone who wants to learn more about incredible women that never made our history books.
