Happy Monday! The glas talk mandatory minimums and why they are TRASH. Anna goes all in on Liberian President Ellen Sirleaf and Mailey reads from her majesty Ruth Bader Ginsburg's autobiography to share the story of tite trailblazer Belva Lockwood.
TRIPLE THREAT THURSDAY Y'ALL. While VP (Vagina Police) Mike Pence was out there voting to defund Planned Parenthood, Emma, Anna and Carl Tart were talkin' Bad Bitches. Resistence fighter Nancy Wake, Civil Rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer, and "nasty minded mulattress" Ida B. Wells. Sit back, have a margarita and soak in the nasty.
This week on Nasty Women Billie Jean IS our love-- Billie Jean King, that is. Also, Second Sex author and woman extrodinaire Simone De Beauvoir. (Also sorry about the sound of the whole second half, I don't know what happened! We need a lady engineer! Sorry-- JUST A REGULAR ENGINEER... who is preferably a female. Email us if you know one! NastyWomenPod@gmail.com !!!)
Happy Women's History Month! This week we have on Zora Bikangaga who brings the heat with his *hot takes* on Jeff Sessions, John D. Rockefeller, and "muckraker" (see: bad bitch) Ida Tarbell. Emma brings the usual amount of lukewarm lunchmeat talkin' Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Mark Twain is there for all of it.
Finally back from DC and we literally mention nothing about it. SRY 4 THE HYPE. This week, we try to keep up with a news cycle that does not quit, and then try to nail down two bad broads who also have no quit-- Sojourner Truth and Toni Morrison. Happy Galentines, hunnie.
This week on Nasty Women, friend of Nasty Women Matthew Brown (of no particular fame) stops by to talk about his hometown hero Elizabeth Warren and Mailey's pick of the week seeks to put all of Trump's cabinet choices to shame. She is the woman behind the New Deal and *literally* all of the worker's rights we have today (hopefully after tomorrow, too) Frances Perkins.
This week we discuss Paul Ryan's disregard for the wellbeing of women in the US, and Margaret Sanger-- a woman who cared so much she dedicated her entire life to it. Then Yoko Ono... who is not the worst, so get over it.
New Years Resolutions, Anais Nin, weird monogomy stuff, and new California State Senator Kamala Harris joins us to help kick off Nasty Women 2k17 (lol, we wish-- but we do talk about her so medium the same). It's fun 2 B *Nasty*
In an attempt to make this a more consistent show, we welcome Anna Newell as a permenant co-host. We talk Russia, Trump, Working Girl, (skip to 24:20 if you wanna get to the main course) Katharine Hepburn, and Angela Davis. Pray 4 Us.
