The Women Transcend podcast series was launched in December 2016. The idea grew out of a frustration from an avid podcast listener with the inability to find specific discussions on issues impacting women and girls, and in particular, a feminist perspective on current events at a time when this perspective is not only under attack, but desperately in need of amplification. The mission of the podcast, and the hope of the producer, is that we will raise issues and start conversations on issues that need to have more focus and attention. Because the future IS female, and we need to be ready.
