Yes, we just had an election that promises to make life better for many women. But our guest this week—New York Magazine writer-at-large Rebecca Traister—is “wary of the feel-good narrative.” She tells host Brittany Packnett Cunningham why we all should be, and gets into what the framing of Kamala Harris's win says about our continued fear of full-grown women. Plus, they discuss whether the activism of 2020 will stick for the long haul—and Brittany brings you the latest Untrending News.
