On this special election focused episode of the #TellItLikeItIs podcast, Cassandra Rae is joined by a quartet of all around badass women in politics to look at what the 2020 US Presidential Election means to women, both inside and outside of America, to see the first woman hold the office of Vice President.
Joining Cassandra are Valerie Petit (@ValeriePetit_EM), Député of the French National Assembly; Luisa Porritt (@LuisaPorritt), Liberal Democrat candidate for London Mayor and former Member of the European Parliament; Non-profit CEO and current Democratic primary candidate for New York City Mayor, Dianne Morales (@Dianne4NYC), and; CNN/ABC Political Commentator, Senior Advisor to the Lincoln Project and co-Host of ‘The Breakdown’ on LPTV, Tara Setmayer (@TaraSetmayer).
Cassandra and her panel examine what it means to see a black woman as Vice President? A half-Indian woman in that office? A daughter of immigrants in that office? And to no longer have a US President who brags about grabbing women by the pussy, who has been accused by dozens of women of sexual assault, and who nominated the most staunchly anti-choice justices to the supreme court we have seen in a lifetime.
They also explore what role have women around the world played in curbing the rise of populist, strong-man politics, and what role can we play in helping to heal the deep divisions that have emerged as a result of that rise.
