Divided States of Women
Presenting feminism with a bipartisan outlook, Divided States of Women aims to shatter the notion that the female perspective is one‐dimensional. Hosted by progressive Liz Plank and her conservative counterpart, Hitha Herzog, this all‐female produced podcast tackles news and issues from Trump’s first year in office, from the NRA to the relationship between feminism and conservative beliefs. The accompanying video series features interviews with women across the country about the pressures of motherhood, the media’s obsession with aging, and unconscious bias.
