We join the Dames today on your favorite podcast covering sexism as they enjoy wine in a can. Hold on to your britches because Kelly and Tracy get feisty with each other in this episode, and agree there are just some things they will disagree about until they’re dead.
Congresswoman Tlaib Curses
The Dames begin by talking about the statement Congresswoman Tlaib from Michigan made on Swearing-in Day that caused an uproar. She said, “We are going to impeach the motherfu@#$!.” Kelly argues that it’s sexism – a double standard for women. A man (Trump) has used the same language and gotten away with it. If you can’t beat him, might as well join him, right? Tracy thinks that Talib has tarnished all the achievements that came with her election to office. Get yourself some popcorn; the discussion gets heated and entertaining.
Courage to Run Back at It
Frieda Edgette joins the Dames to discuss Courage to Run, a nonpartisan 5k run/walk based in D.C., and its path for 2019. Courage to Run is growing and plans to use the political “off” year to build up support for women to live healthy and lead effectively. You can listen to the first time we spoke with Frieda here.
Elizabeth Warren and Likeability
Finally, The Button has Kelly and Tracy talking about Elizabeth Warren’s Presidential Run once again; it’s only been a week since she stepped into the presidential election and the lady shit has already hit the f#$% fan. What is the issue surrounding women candidates? If the issue isn’t likeability than is it just sexism and misogyny? Or is there more to it than that?
East Coast meets West Coast as Tracy and Kelly welcome Kaiya Waddell of Facebook to the show to discuss the similarities for women in politics and women in tech. Kaiya also joins the Dames for this week’s Stupid Shit People Say for a little World Cup misogyny.
Then things take a turn to middle school humor as the Dames discuss the Fair And Reciprocal Trade Act, a leaked draft of new proposed legislation blowing out of The White House, and ponder just how much the President’s staff must hate him to put his name on a FART Act. Are they completely unaware of Washington’ penchant for acronyms? And can Tracy stop giggling?
All that and more squeaks out of this latest episode. Just stand upwind.
Tracy and Kelly welcome a very special guest, Frieda Edgette, to talk about her new initiative, Courage To Run, the nation’s first nonpartisan run and walk that celebrates the rising wave of women getting civically active and running for office. Frieda talks to the Dames about how the run can elevate the mindset, endurance and heartfelt vision needed to be healthy and lead effectively in civic life today. We encourage everyone to participate!
Glamour and GQ partnered on an exclusive survey that asked men about everything from workplace harassment to consent. Kelly reads the results to Tracy—and the results are hilarious.
