Following the fall of Roe v. Wade, Michigan women face an uncertain future due to a 1931 "zombie law " on the books that would criminalize abortion. Mobilizing into action are a pro-choice mother-daughter duo, Shelly and Hailey, and an army of volunteer escorts at Northland Family Planning who protect clinic patients from armed protesters or "Anti's." Due to Michigan being an open-carry state, the escorts wear bodycams to monitor the" Anti's" activity. Lead Escort Marie and other volunteers mobilize to get enough signatures for a ballot initiative to amend outdated laws -- and keep abortion legal in Michigan.Featuring interviews with Michigan A..G.

Essayist, humor writer, and editor Elissa Bassist joins Zerlina on the show to talk about her new book HYSTERICAL: A Memoir, out now!HYSTERICAL: A Memoir  by Elissa Bassist, editor extraordinaire of The Rumpus's “Funny Women” column, was born out of frustration over living in a society where men control storytelling, news, Silicon Valley, reproductive rights, and far too many conversations, and where woman are called crazy for experiencing emotion, second-guessed, demeaned, and threatened for speaking up, and then shamed for what they did or didn't say. HYSTERICAL is Elissa's story of how repressing her voice made her physically ill for over two years and her call for women to unmute their voice, listen to it above all others, and use it again without regret. Kirkus call HYSTERICAL “a sharp examination of life in ‘a culture where men speak and women shut up'... [Bassist's] memoir stands as proof of an arduous process of healing. A fiery cultural critique.” And if that hasn't convinced you to cover this book, here's just a taste of Elissa's brilliant writing: “Despite the rumors, it isn't so easy to just speak up. Since women are trained to disappear while being looked at constantly, we become our first and greatest critics and censors— so, speaking up for ourselves is not how we learn English. Instead, we're fluent in Giggle, in Question Mark, in Self-Deprecation, in Asking for It, in Miscommunication, in Bowing Down. These are all really different silences— we speak, but exclusively in compliments (‘Your sexism is so well said') and in apologies.” Elissa Bassist is an essayist, humor writer, and editor of the “Funny Women” column on The Rumpus. As a founding contributor to The Rumpus, she's written cultural, feminist, and personal criticism since the website launched in 2009. Her writing has appeared in The New York Times, Marie Claire, Creative Nonfiction, The New Yorker, Longreads, and more, including the anthology Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture, edited by Roxane Gay. Currently, she teaches writing at The New School, Catapult, 92nd Street Y, and Lighthouse Writers Workshop. She lives in Brooklyn and is probably her therapist's favorite.

The Queen of the Clit herself Dr. Laurie Mitz author of "Becoming Cliterate" is back with another cliterate episode.  Over the years I've realized that we really don't know much about female anatomy and sexuality in the general public.  Like women don't even know about their own bodies and what sexual pleasure really is.  Women don't know that the vagina isn't their entire sexual nether region.  Over and over I hear women say they "think" they have had an orgasm.  Ummmm... you'd know for sure if you had had one, I promise.  And they think that if they squirt they are peeing on themselves.  So listening to all of this I figured we needed to REALLY talk about it openly and who better to have this conversation with than Dr. Laurie.  We start this crucial conversation on this episode.  Let's talk Vulvas, Vaginas, Orgasms, Squirting and more.  And you know this won't be the last episode with my favorite Queen of Clit Dr. Laurie Mitz but you don't want to miss this one. This is a conversation we need to have a lot more of because ladies our sexual health and our bodies are just as important as mens.  No more "thinking" you've had an orgasm - go grab a vibrator and learn how your body truly works so that you can improve your sex life with your partner or even if you don't have a partner still get that very health and needed orgasm on your own.  Sexuality isn't just a male hetero-centric thing.  Women are a major part of it.  Sex isn't something done to us.  Our bodies are not something to be ashamed of.  Let's take sex and our bodies back.   PS check out her epic vibrator earrings.  Y'all I really need a pair to go with my new clitoris pin.  Y'all its way past time that we all became cliterate. Link to order book from Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Becoming-Cliterate-Laurie-Mintz-audiobook/dp/B074NBD66K/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=becoming+cliterate+dr.+laurie+mintz&qid=1640900368&sprefix=becoming+clit%2Caps%2C155&sr=8-1EPISODE 2:19 COCKTAIL RECIPE | Watermelon Splash4 oz watermelon and cucumber juice2 oz watermelon vodkaSplash of lime juiceEdible Glitter from Fancy SprinklesFor all the latest contests and happening behind the scenes:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Karas-Lipsti... Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/karaslipsti...To view the antics subscribe to the YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE2P...#karaslipstickdiary​ #cliterate #femalepleasure #femalesexuality #sex #sextalk #drlauriemintz #sextherapy #sexeducation #femaleanatomy #clitoris #vulva #vagina #womensrights #sexuality #sexualhealth #feminist #sexpositive ABOUT KARA'S LIPSTICK DIARYKara Winslow is freelance on location makeup artist based in Florida that has worked in the entertainment and wedding/event industries for over 25 years.  She spent over a decade doing work at HSN both on camera and behinds the scenes for a cosmetic company.  After several years of being away from being on camera she decided to launch her podcast.

Former Goldman Sachs managing director Jaime Fiore Higgins joins Zerlina on the show to discuss her new book BULLY MARKET: My Story of Money and Misogyny at Goldman Sachs, out now! Jamie Fiore Higgins became one of the few women at the highest ranks of Goldman Sachs. Spurred on by the obligation she felt to her working-class immigrant family, she rose through the ranks and saw it all: out-of-control, lavish parties flowing with never-ending drinks; affairs flouted in the office; rampant drug use; and most pervasively, a discriminatory culture that seemed designed to hold back the few women and people of color employed at the company.Despite Goldman Sachs having the right talking points and statistics, Fiore Higgins soon realized that these provided a veneer to cover up what she found to be an abusive culture. Her account in BULLY MARKET is one filled with shocking stories of harassment and jaw-dropping tales of exclusionary behavior: when she was told she only got promoted because she is a woman; when her coworkers mooed at her after she pumped for her fourth child, defying the superior who had advised her not to breastfeed; or when a male boss used a racial epithet in front of her, other colleagues, and clients without any repercussions.BULLY MARKET sounds the alarm on the culture of finance and corporate America, while offering clear, actionable ideas for creating a fairer workplace. Both a revealing, extraordinary look at the industry and a top Wall Streeter's explosive personal story, Bully Market is an essential account of one woman's experience in a flawed system that speaks to the challenge and urgency for change.Jamie Fiore Higgins worked as a managing director at Goldman Sachs. One of just 8 percent of Goldman employees to earn the managing director title, she was the highest-ranking woman in her department. An active member of the Women's Network Committee, Fiore Higgins spent her workdays running the trainee and internship programs, recruiting, and managing top equity clients and $96 billion in stock. Living in New Jersey with her husband and four children, she is a trained coach, working with teens to hone in on their leadership skills, high school, and college graduates as they begin careers, professionals as they navigate the workforce, and those in midlife looking to reinvent themselves. She is also a contributor for Medium and Thrive Global.

Natalie is joined this week by Shehla Faizi.Shehla produces and hosts the podcast, "I'm A Muslim (And That's Okay!)", which is her take on creating a counter-narrative to popular media perceptions about Muslims. The women come together to talk about the parallel misogynistic practices experienced through their two different cultures. The resounding truth is when these faiths and political systems do not evolve to meet the needs and changes of the population, then the people will distance themselves from those systems. Join the women as they have a cathartic and honest conversation about women's oppression within these religious and cultural systems and what needs to change.  Follow us at @menivetoleratedpod on Instagram and https://www.patreon.com/menivetoleratedpod on Patreon for bonus content!

In the nation's biggest Covid pivot, Roe V. Wade was overturned on June 24th and I knew that I wanted to address it as the last episode of season 4.  Kia Guarino, Executive Director of Pro-Choice Washington, the only agency in WA State whose sole focus is on "political and legislative adovcacy for reproductive freedom in WA State," sits down with me to discuss how this happened and what we can do to move forward. The reversal of Roe V. Wade is done and there is currently a federal abortion ban on the table, so policy is one of the only tools we have to keep abortion accessible to all people.  But I'm not sure many of us understand what to do or how to apply ourselves to policy change and that's where Ms. Guarino comes in.  My hope for this episode is that you leave with a sense of what the truth is, and get some tools to help normalize the word abortion and the conversations that surround it.  Pro-Choice Washington's How to Talk About Abortion Guide Join Pro-Choice WA 26,000 members Walker-Johnson Real Estate

Choosing Death: The Legacy of Roe is Daily Wire documentary that focuses on the narratives the left propagates to lie to women as it pertains to abortion. It primarily features interviews from women experts in the field including comments from abortion survivors! Unplanned, on the other hand, is a book adaptation based on the true story of Abby Johnson, an ex-Planned Parenthood Director. Both films are hard to watch and, at times, very graphic. But we believe these films are integral to understanding the brutality and the lies spewed about what abortion really is.
