  • So You Want To Talk About Race author, Ijeoma Oluo

    "So You Want To Talk About Race" author, Ijeoma Oluo

    22/07/2020 Duración: 42min

    An awkward conversation with her white mother about “good white people” inspired Ijeoma Oluo to take on the unenviable task of writing one of the most user-friendly books on race of our time: “So You Want To Talk About Race.” In plain language, Ijeoma has confronted deeply uncomfortable questions surrounding racial injustice from the school-to-prison pipeline to the Black Lives Matter movement to white feminism and intersectionality. In our conversation recorded in 2018, Ijeoma wakes me up to the fact that solidarity between all women cannot happen until white cis women hold themselves accountable to the ways they have benefitted from systems of oppression. Most importantly, Ijeoma offers practical, everyday actions that you can do today to help dismantle the system of racism.

  • Women World Leaders Get it Done - The Broad Experience Summer Swap

    Women World Leaders Get it Done - "The Broad Experience" Summer Swap

    24/06/2020 Duración: 30min

    Women who run countries have been getting a lot of claps on the back for their leadership during this Pandemic--not only their inclusive, unifying approach but the results--lower infection rates, higher protections for health workers, better tech, greater commitment to the greater good. I have especially loved reading about the leader of New Zealand, Jacinta Ardern and her calm, decisive, empathetic “team New Zealand” approach. An approach literally a world away from what we’re seeing in Washington DC. In a recent episode of The Broad Experience, a podcast about women, the workplace and success, host Ashley Milne-Tyte explores how today’s successful women leaders like Jacinta Ardern can make a more permanent change for how we view women in leadership. As part of the Inflection Point summer swap series, here’s that The Broad Experience episode.

    10/06/2020 Duración: 41min

    Welcome to the Inflection Point Summer Swap Series, where we share other great female-led podcasts. This week features an episode of Brave Not Perfect with author, Ted speaker, Girls Who Code founder, and podcast host (and a previous guest of mine) Reshma Saujani. Reshma sits down with one of her personal heroes, Cecile Richards, for a compelling conversation about women's political power in this episode of Brave, Not Perfect. Cecile opens up about the bravery of stepping down as head of Planned Parenthood, co-founding Supermajority to empower women, and making lasting change in a system that was set up to keep women out. The pair also discuss the power women have in the upcoming 2020 elections, finding joy through changing the world, and self-care. Plus, Reshma answers the questions you've been sending in at the end of her show. You can tell Reshma your Brave, Not Perfect story or ask her a question by calling 347-76-BRAVE or sending an email to bravenotperfect@girlswhocode.com. Plus, you can follow her

  • A Conversation To Do the Dishes By - Eve Rodsky, author of Fair Play returns!

    A Conversation To Do the Dishes By - Eve Rodsky, author of "Fair Play" returns!

    20/05/2020 Duración: 51min

    Could the Covid-19 pandemic be the inflection point that marks the end of the gendered division of labor at home? Now that we are all tethered to our homes, you may be doing more laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning (did I say dishes?), nose wiping, bottom wiping and emotionally tending to your kids and teens. So it seems super timely for us to talk to the woman who has emerged as a leader in the movement to end the gendered division of labor at home and how to divvy up that labor as equitably as possible. Eve Rodsky has spent almost a decade surveying women and men about who does what at home to understand how and why we divide up labor along gender lines--and how to shift it--she’s talked with Economists, Psychologists, Historians, Neurologists and more. And she wrote a book that details exactly how to divide and conquer with your partner, the unending duties at home. It’s called "Fair Play: A Game-Changing Solution For When You Have Too Much to Do (and More Life to Live)". If you’ve been listening

  • How To Get Through The Worst, Together--Dr Kelsey Crowe

    How To Get Through The Worst, Together--Dr Kelsey Crowe

    29/04/2020 Duración: 50min

    I think we can all agree, it’s been a rough spring with COVID-19 taking over our lives. You may know someone who’s sick, or who’s lost a loved one or their livelihood, or any number of awful things. But as this all goes down, we don’t always know what to say, or do, for someone who’s hurting, let alone asking for the help we might need ourselves. My guest Kelsey Crowe wrote a book, “There is No Good Card For This. What to Say and Do When Life is Scary, Awful, and Unfair to the People You Love” and founded a whole community called Help Each Other Out, to help us help each other. We spoke in 2017 and I thought we could all use a bit of what she calls “whiskey for the wounded.” Support our production with a monthly or one-time contribution!

  • Surround yourself with people who believe in you - Solo Swimmer Kim Chambers

    "Surround yourself with people who believe in you" - Solo Swimmer Kim Chambers

    15/04/2020 Duración: 51min

    Marathon Swimming Hall of Famer Kim Chambers is only the sixth person ever to complete the Ocean’s Seven challenge... solo. That's seven open water channel swims. Think summiting Mount Everest in a bathing suit x 7... hours upon hours upon hours of swimming in critter-filled, often quite cold water. Kim is also the first and only woman in the world to solo swim the 30 miles of shark inhabited waters from the Farallon islands to the golden gate of San Francisco. We spoke at the kickoff of Women’s History Month at The Battery in San Francisco (right before everything shut down!) about taking risks, jellyfish and body image--as well as how important having a team who believes in you is for "individual" success.

  • How Actor Amber Tamblyn Created Her Own Role: Feminist Activist

    How Actor Amber Tamblyn Created Her Own Role: Feminist Activist

    19/02/2020 Duración: 50min

    In this episode we’ll hear how Amber Tamblyn went from being an actress to being an activist--defining her own role in the feminist movement--and how we can all play a role in leading change.  Amber's  book is called "Era of Ignition: Coming of Age in a Time of Rage and Revolution." It's part memoir, part manifesto, part call to action. We sat down together in San Francisco while she was in town as part of the release of her book in paperback. Back in 2017, Amber wrote an OpEd for the NYTimes, called "I'm Done With Not Being Believed" in which she tells what happened when a well-known actor almost as old as her dad tried to pick her up when she was 16, and then called her a liar when she outed him on Twitter. This was before the Weinstein revelations, before the #MeToo movement caught fire and before Times Up, which Amber went on to co-found. Support our production with a monthly or one-time donation.

    Gail Collins and the Adventures of Older Women in American History

    08/01/2020 Duración: 50min

    Jane Fonda. Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Nancy Pelosi. Elizabeth Warren. Maxine Waters. Are "older" women taking over? By 2034 there will be more people 65 and older than there are people under 18. And by and large, women are outliving men. So what might all these older women mean in terms of a possible power shift, historically speaking? Listen to my conversation with Gail Collins, New York Times columnist and the author of the new book, “No Stopping Us Now. The Adventures of Older Women in American History” We explore how attitudes toward older women have shifted in America over the centuries – from the Plymouth Colony view that women were marriageable if "civil and under fifty years of age," to quiet dismissal of post-reproductive females, to women’s role as perpetual caretaker (even when she might need caretaking herself), to the first female nominee for president. Lauren spoke with Gail on stage for the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco in October of 2019. Support our production with a tax deductible c
