Beyond Roe: Gloria Steinem and Renee Bracey Sherman on How We Got Here and What Happens Next

UNDISTRACTED with Brittany Packnett Cunningham - December 9, 2021 - 41:07

As SCOTUS weighs overturning the legal right to abortion, host Brittany Packnett Cunningham sits down for a moving conversation on what’s most important: the people behind the politics. Her guests are two leaders separated by a generation but determined to put the emphasis on the humanity of people who seek abortions: legendary activist Gloria Steinem and the “Beyoncé of Abortion storytelling” Renee Bracey Sherman. They get into everything from their own personal stories to why the movement has sidelined the populations it serves. There’s laughter, tears—and hope. With a guest introduction by The Meteor’s Rebecca Carroll.
