Author E. Jean Carroll on Her Feminist Road Trip Across America
When we heard that E. Jean Carroll—the same E. Jean behind *Elle*'s long-running advice column, Ask E. Jean—had recently embarked on a road trip through the midwest, only visiting towns named after women, we knew we had to give her a call. But when we heard it was all in search of an answer to the very specific question "what do we need men for?" we just couldn't wait. This episode, we talk through E. Jean's love of road trips (she once drove around the U.S. to stay at all of her exes homes for Esquire, how people responded to her question along the way, and the answers that she found. It's truly a ride. Find a full transcription of the episode, and a link to E. Jean's book, here:
