Women’s Rights Rollback: The New Frontier


A century after the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, the uncertainty that foreshadowed the suffrage victory foreshadows the precariousness of women’s rights. “Finish the Fight!,” a rallying cry from the battle to win the final battle of the women’s voting rights movement, once again characterizes the ongoing struggle for full gender equality, and is the focus of the show’s ninth episode. The guests discuss the history of the women’s movement and the hurdles that remain.

Panelists include:

  • Katty Kay, Washington editor, Ozy Media
  • Sophia Nelson, scholar in residence at Christopher Newport University and author of The Woman Code
  • Stacey E. Plaskett, U.S. congresswoman, (D) Virgin Islands
  • Cecile Richards, co-founder of Supermajority
