Featured EPISODE

Take Back the Fight

Some of the most exciting activism that’s happening right now is feminist.

How do we build the power to make the changes that feminist activists seek to make in society? First we need to understand the history of what it took to gain the rights we have now. They were not handed to us from benevolent leaders; it took breaking the law, civil disobedience, intense fights, and activism in the streets.


Nora Loreto [@NoLore], journalist, author of Take Back the Fight, and co-host of the Sandy & Nora Talk Politics podcast

Andrea Houston [@DreaHouston], journalist for Xtra
