    How Political Races Change When Two Women Compete with Amanda Hunter of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation

    How Political Races Change When Two Women Compete with Amanda Hunter of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation

    Amanda Hunter, the Executive Director of the Barbara Lee Family Foundation, discusses their new research exploring how political races change when two women compete. In our conversation we explore key findings including how women must prove their qualifications, where men are assumed to be qualified—a fact that doesn't change when the race is between two women. Also, we discuss the significant racial, gender, and partisan differences that shape how voters view the importance of electing women and people of color.

    Can State Legislatures Protect Us from the End of Roe v Wade with Lala Wu of Sister District

    Lala Wu, the Executive Director of the Sister District Project, discusses the Supreme Court opinion leak which revealed that conservative justices were planning to overturn Roe v Wade, thus making abortion illegal. We address whether access to birth control may be their next target, what state legislatures can do to mitigate the harms of overturning Roe v Wade, and how we can fight back against attacks on reproductive rights.

Excellent first episode with Dr. Laura Briggs

Sitting in on conversations with smart women.

I love listening to smart women! Ever since the election, I've felt frustrated, and helpless. I'm one of those people who wasn't really paying attention until November. These have been good, constructive conversations. I look forward to more!
