State Politics Heating Up Across Country Jessica Taylor, the Senate and Governors Editor for The Cook Political Report, and Zach Montellaro, state politics reporter at POLITICO take a look at state politics and gubernatorial races around the country where candidates are debating issues around education, police reform, and abortion rights. New Analyses Show Potential Undercount of Black Population During 2020 Census The findings have brought up concerns that some jurisdictions and civil rights leaders have had about lower-than-expected totals in the 2020 Census. “This might be our greatest undercount since 1960, or 1950,” said Marc Morial, former mayor of New Orleans and president and chief executive of the National Urban League, which sued the bureau last year to stop the count from ending early. Morial joined us to discuss the undercount and the far-reaching implications it could have.  The Experience of Resettling as an Afghan Refugee Fifty-five thousand. That's how many Afghans have relocated to the U.S. since mid-August.According to the Department of Homeland Security, about 40 percent are eligible for special immigrant visas because of the work they did aiding U.S. efforts in Afghanistan. But for other Afghan evacuees, it's unclear what their legal status will be. Many entered the country not as traditional refugees, but instead under a temporary legal process known as parole. That means many of these refugees currently don't have a direct pathway to permanent residency. For more on this, The Takeaway spoke with Naheed Samadi-Bahram, Women for Afghan Women's U.S. Country Director.

Barbara Field has published pieces in newspapers and magazines, and her novel attracted the attention of Hollywood for a nanosecond. She also was an instructor, ghostwriter, and keynote speaker. After falling seriously ill and being near death's door, Barbara realized her son did not really know her. While she was recovering at home, she realized we don't know people's life stories and she wanted to help people write their memoirs to leave as a legacy. She now teaches people just how to do that. Find out more about Barbara and her journey in this week's episode!   Key takeaways: How did Barbara become a writer? Don't think you can write? The smartest people Barbara knows are actually terrible spellers! Barbara talks about her work with the Afghan Women's Writing Project. Barbara learned that by writing a letter and by asking for what you want, a lot of doors open for you. People are happy to accept your help! Don't overthink it. Just leap and do it. When Barbara worked on the Afghan project and the OpEd Project, her career skyrocketed and she was asked to speak about her work from all over. Barbara's biggest leap in her career was moving back to New York City at the age of 50 and starting her memoir business. Why did Barbara start her own business? People remember stories more than they do facts. Barbara loves helping people tell their stories! Don't have a story? That's a lie! We all have stories we can share and give to the world. Your legacy can be leaving people you love with your stories. You have to get your stories down first, and then you can clean it up a little. Who does Barbara love to work with? What sometimes stops people from writing? Why is Barbara's writing class so much more fun and engaging compared to others? It's because it's guided and intentional!   Resources: Writinglifestories.com Brenda on LinkedIn Awwproject.org   Quotes:   “I was a struggling single mom and I finally gave myself permission to do something that I wanted.”   “A study at Stanford Business School said people remember stories more than facts 22 times more!”   “Most people don't get their stories down first because they're intimidated by the writing process.”

Light up a doobie cause this one is a fun little doozy. We have actor, comedian, cabaret star and former Susan Miller fan....Scout Durwood aka Lady Scountington!!!!!! Hey girl, hey! Because Scout is living that #vanlife she joins us from a van pulled over on the side of the road on her way to Palm Springs! That's California traffic and that's commitment!  Because Scout is originally from Kansas City, Kansas, Kelly starts our school day off in Geometry class where we learn a lot about tornados because apparently that's a thing there.  Then, because Scout starred in the MTV show Mary + Jane we go to D.A.R.E and learn all about drugs, man. You've played a game on FYIS but have you played a game on FYIS on Weeeeeeeed?  Kelly then takes us to Student Government, although her class doesn't really have anything to do with Student Government and is more about strange awards shows in honor of Scout being nominated for a Streamy Award. Just go with it.  Then Lindsey ends our day in Fashion class where we learn all about Coco Chanel? Why, you ask? Well, because miss Chanel was responsible for the famous quote, "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off." And why is this significant? Because Scout's visual album (that you should WATCH NOW) is called 'Take one thing off' and it's AMAZING! Link below.  Will Scout school us from a van parked in the middle of no where? Will Kelly want to join the pool rats? Will Lindsey know anything about tornados? No. She's more of a hurricane aficianado.  Ps. Special shout out to Susan Miller.

It's the first year in which women and men are awarded equal prize money in Venice's annual rowing race, the Regata Storica. Emma speaks to lead campaigner and professional rower, Elena Almansi. This week the Taliban announced that all women must wear hijab and will be segregated in universities. Emma is joined by the former Minister for Women's Affairs, Hasina Safi, who is now with her family in a hotel in the UK having escaped under cover in the final days of the evacuation. Emma also speaks to Carolyn Webster, who stood as a parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party in the last general election and is now an independent councillor in Bridgend in Wales. She has been organising collections for Afghans stuck in British hotels after quarantined and is concerned about their conditions. For 25 years Julia Peyton-Jones was director at the Serpentine Gallery in London. Under her tenure the number of visitors to the gallery in an old tea pavilion in Hyde Park rose from 200,000 to more than one million. Announcing her departure in 2016, she said she wanted to spend more time painting. 'I will be starting all over again,' she said at the time. 'I am 64. My goal is to live to 100 and remain in really good shape.' Less than a year later, she became a mother, returning from California with a baby daughter. The press covered the story extensively but Julia chose not to give any interviews. Now she has brought out a book called Pia's World consisting of drawings she did every night in 2020, of her and her daughter's day. In this first broadcast interview, Julia joins Emma in the studio. A campaign to outlaw the misuse of NDAs, non-disclosure agreements, in jurisdictions around the world is launched today. Campaigners say too many of these agreements enable powerful individuals and businesses to cover up sexual harassment, racism and other wrong doing. Joining Emma are the two women fronting the campaign - Zelda Perkins, the first woman to break an NDA with Harvey Weinstein, and Canadian law professor and author Dr Julie MacFarlane. We also hear from Emma Bartlett, employment law specialist at C M Murray.

America's longest war is over. But the chaotic end to the war in Afghanistan has many Americans questioning the leadership of the Biden administration. It's estimated that there are still between 100 and 200 Americans and thousands of our Afghan partners trapped in the Taliban-controlled south-central Asian nation. While the Taliban claim they will respect the rights of women and girls, experts say the terrorist group hasn't given Afghans any reason to believe them. “It seems that the women will be those who will be losing the most, whether it is because of conflict or the authoritarian regime that is oppressive toward women,” says Roya Rahmani, the female former Afghan ambassador to the United States. On Tuesday, Rahmani and Heela Najibullah, author of “Reconciliation and Social Healing in Afghanistan,” joined The Heritage Foundation for an event, “Grim Prospects for Women and Girls in Afghanistan.” We share their remarks on the podcast today. Also on the show, we mark the start of the college and NFL football season by talking about the big games to watch this week. And Kanye West finally releases "Donda,” his new album. We break down some of the controversy over the album's release, and how the record highlights West's artistic talent. And as always, we will crown our “Problematic Women of the Week.” Plus, “Problematic Women” announces a new show format. In addition to the Thursday show, which will now be solely discussion-based, “Problematic Women” will release an exclusive interview every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. Enjoy the show!

Dismantling the Victimization of Afghan Women with Madina Wardak

White feminism is built on centering Euro-American so-called progressive views as the pinnacle of women's liberation. It rejects intersectionality and complexity, instead manifesting in the form of white saviorism, fueled by the very system it claims to challenge: misogyny. Over the past week, much of the conversation around Afghanistan has been focused on the “liberation of Afghan women.” These calls for “liberation” are a manifestation of Euro American imperialism under the guise of white feminism. The same narratives of “women's liberation” that were used to justify war 20 years ago continue to dominate headlines without acknowledging the ways in which war, forgein occupation, and imperialism only further exasperate harm.When it comes to Afghan women, we have equated what they wear to degrees of oppression. By doing so, we have made “freedom” synonymous with western fashion standards instead of centering what “freedom” means to Afghan women themselves which includes their self-defined priorities around access to economic, education, and political agency. By centering Euro American standards around what liberation looks like, we are sidelining the voices that we should be listening to: the voices of Afghan women who are on the grounds challenging the systems they live in. Madina Wardak is a displaced Afghan settled on Tongva Land (Los Angeles, CA). Madina studied Political Science with an emphasis on the Middle East, and Social Work. She is the founder of Burqas & Beer, a social media platform Madina that explores identity, mental health, SWANA current events, and truth-telling.

With the Taliban returning to power in Afghanistan, many groups have been fearful of retribution, including the Afghan Women's National Soccer Team, which has long been a symbol of defiance to the ultra-conservative Islamic group. Last week, against all odds (and amidst the chaos at the Kabul airport), the players and their family members managed to make it out of the country alive. Today, we have the inside story of their incredible escape, which included secret communications, beatings by the Taliban, and wading through a canal filled with sewage water -- and how teamwork ultimately helped them survive.Here are links to some of the organizations working to help the team (and others) leave Afghanistan:Human Right For All - https://www.hr4a.com.au/Centre For Sport And Human Rights - https://www.sporthumanrights.org/FIFPRO - https://www.fifpro.org/enSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Women and girls in Afghanistan face an uncertain future now that the Taliban controls the country. A generation of women has been able to work and go to school, something they weren't able to do the last time the Taliban was in power.  The Taliban have promised to be more moderate this time around. But this week, Taliban leaders told women and girls to stay inside for now because they say the group's soldiers haven't been “trained” on how to respect women. Guidance like that has many women worried about what their lives will look like, especially once the U.S. and news organizations have left and the world pays less attention. We're talking about this today with women's rights expert and executive director of the Arab Institute for Women, Lina AbiRafeh. She spent two decades as a humanitarian worker overseas, including four years in Afghanistan.

After four years of marching in the streets and claiming ”oppression” under President Donald Trump, many of the country's so-called feminists are conspicuously silent about the plight of women and girls in Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban takeover.Worse, some of those who aren't silent are instead using their platforms to attack conservatives who are working to bring attention to the rights of Afghan girls and women. “If the GOP wants to show that it is sincerely concerned with the rights of the women in Afghanistan, it can start by first championing the human rights of women in the U.S.,” one MSNBC contributor wrote. On this week's episode of the ”Problematic Women” podcast, we discuss why these petty, partisan attacks are a dishonest representation of democracy itself and an affront to the realities that Afghan girls and women now face.We also catch up with Concerned Women for America's Afghanistan Prayer Rally and highlight two brave Afghan women who leave us with hope in a dark situation.

Advocates working on the ground say those promises are nothing more than a publicity stunt. They point to the women's rights violations under the Taliban, not just when the group was last in power, but also in the past year.Women living in the Afghan provinces where the Taliban had already taken control have been the victims of targeted beatings and killings. Though women are largely off the streets, they've been leading protests against the new government, unwilling to sacrifice the massive gains in rights they've earned themselves in the past two decades.What's at stake for the girls and women of Afghanistan?
