Jill Filipovic on the Feminist Pursuit of Happiness
Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu #40 June 1, 2017
Imagine a world in which women weren’t forced to struggle for equality in a system rigged against them. Imagine instead, the ideal world of journalist and author Jill Filipovic – one in which happiness for women is the driving force behind policies like fair pay and legal recognition of best friendships. In that world, Jill says, not only are women happier and healthier, but most everyone else (read: people who aren’t white men) are better off, too. In this episode of Politically Re-Active, your favorite hosts sit down with Jill to talk about her policy ideas as well as Ivanka Trump’s brand of “empowerment”, white lady feminism, and the evil of the all-male photo op.
