Feminism at Home and Around the World, in the Age of Trump

Air Date: May 28, 2017

About this episode

Across the world, the role of women, in economics, politics, religion and culture are evolving and often contentious. Many see as one of the greatest fault lines, and most dangerous flash points, in global affairs today as incomprehensible unless one looks at that divide through the prism of conflicting values about the role of women. And, of course, in 2016, the United States elected a man who, at the very least, has controversial views about women, which many find repugnant, instead of the first female presidential nominee of a major party, a woman who many argued was among the most qualified people ever to seek the office. Panelists discuss what does feminism mean in the age of Trump.
