Divided States of Women

Too often, women are thought of as a monolithic bloc, and they were often discussed that way throughout the 2016 election. But women are in fact divided on major issues. Hosted by Liz Plank and Hitha Herzog, Divided States of Women uncovers the complicated, multifaceted, intersectional debates that make up the life of the modern American woman.  Liz (a progressive) and Hitha (a conservative) are friends who get along, but don't always agree. They'll bring prominent feminist thinkers, politicians and celebs onto the show as guests, and they'll report from the field to hear from women around the country.

Denzel J-G’s Review

Unprecedented. A show for the decades. This podcast reveals the long underrepresented, misunderstood, and strategically ignored complexity and depth of women in an easy to understand, yet still serious and possibly pragmatic format.

The first episode is ambitious. It confronts the paradox of believing in women’s rights and issues, but also being a conservative. They also delve into the 2016 election and what it means for women seeking a powerful role, such as president, and all the double standards, sexism, and gender roles they must jump through.

But the real gem of this podcast, is it’s ability to show perspectives from many angles; it’s usually the calling card of brainwashing when a news or educational program offers their specific viewpoint on a subject, and shouts down other from almost all news media organizations/ corporations. But this show doesn’t rely on massive donations from big companies, politicians, or political businesses. That means they can give you good information, with less bias, because no one is telling them what to say. I hope it stays that way.

The speakers ask the right questions, and they can’t be answered in a single episode so I look forward to many seasons to really tackle the existential issues facing our country.

Legit - Love this.

Have been waiting for this podcast my whole life it seems. Thank you Liz Plank and Hitha Herzog for taking this on. I want to have more honest and practical conversations with women about women's issues and this can only help. Thank you for being champions of women, and americans. <3

A different perspective.

Provides insight to other political perspectives without making me angry. That’s a first.
