On this week’s episode the Waves, Christina, June, Nichole, and Marcia discuss The Morning Show, the Apple TV+ series that follows a television news program dealing with a #MeToo storyline. Then, they talk about the evolution of feminist blogging over the past decade in light of two recent stories: “A Farewell to Feministing and the Heyday of Feminist Blogging” by Emma Goldberg in the New York Times and “How the Internet Killed Feminism” by Soraya Roberts in Jezebel. Finally, they take on open-plan offices, a design that multiple studies have found to be detrimental to women.
In Slate Plus: Is it sexist that Barack Obama suggested that women are better people and therefore will make better leaders?
