The Waves: Gender, Relationships, Feminism
Thursday, 12 September
On this week’s episode of the Waves, Christina, Marcia, Nichole, and June discuss the success of the SoulCycle boycott and ask why some boycotts bite more than others, and why this one is getting so much attention. Then, they talk about Showtime’s docuseries Couples Therapyand how it combines the armchair judgment of reality TV with serious and intimate revelations about gender, race, and relationships between a therapist and her patients. Finally, the panelists share their reads of Taffy Brodesser-Akner’s profile of Marianne Williamson for the New York Times Magazine. Is a New Age spiritual leader a good choice for a political leader?
In Slate Plus: Moms Demand Action has been at the forefront of recent gun-safety victories, but is it sexist for “the moms” to be the ones who step up and demand change in the wake of mass shootings?
