The Way We Never Were Prologued

    • History

On the season premiere of Prologued, we confront the myth of the women's voting bloc in the aftermath of the 2016 election and during the 2020 election cycle. Then, to truly understand the truth of the women's bloc, we take you back--all the way back to the American Revolution--and learn that women in America have never been completely united. 

Today's esteemed guests:
Dr. Joan Flores-Villalobos, the University of Southern California (formerly of The Ohio State University)
Dr. Daniel Rivers, The Ohio State University
Dr. Lilia Fernandez, Rutgers University
