The election results have many of us feeling defeated and scared. It’s a hard day for women and feminism, for black people, Latinx people, Native people and other racial minorities, for queer people, disabled people. But we have to keep fighting. In that spirit, this episode features songs of protest and taking on the world from our favorite women artists.
Although we didn’t get our first woman president last night, women are still the future. Our voices are needed more than ever, as is our hope, our strength, our mutual support.
