“No one likes feminists, not even liberals” | Mrs America & the uphill struggle to equality

This week on the Feminist Frequency Radio podcast we grapple with Hulu’s limited series Mrs. America, focusing on the battle for and against the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s. The show stars Cate Blanchett as Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative writer and politician who led the conservative opposition to the ERA.Join as we struggle with the powerful questions and feelings the series raises as this telling of feminism’s past illuminates the many issues the movement continues to face today.
