It isn’t entirely clear what’s in store for reproductive health in 2017, but it’s looking pretty bleak. (That’s why, immediately after the election, women across the country made a run on IUDs and other forms of birth control.) In the second installment of TalkPoverty Radio’s best-of series, we re-up two of our favorite interviews. First, our conversation with Rebecca Traister, writer-at-large for New York Magazine and author of New York Times bestseller All the Single Ladies, about how single women have long been an engine for social progress. Then, we revisit our interview with Lizz Winstead, co-creator of The Daily Show, and the comics of Lady Parts Justice, on comedy as a tool for reproductive justice.
