Hi, kelly. And joining us today on the podcast is a special guest congresswoman Jan Schakowsky from Illinois. Hello, congresswoman. Hi, I'm so happy to be with you guys. Yeah. With we're thrilled to have. You said this podcast. I to buds talking politics is about organizing is about regular people figuring out what to do how to how to really get politics, moving forward in this moment as Rebecca do you wanna talk some about the vote her in series? Well, there's no better example of what to do to voter in than of a leader than I will say, my fearless leader, infringe and secorski. So were thrilled to have John here to talk about what all of us can do going forward to realize. Is our dreams for more women elected in two thousand twenty in going forward? So we're just going to jump right in with Jan and ask her to share with us. You know what? She's seen in the L annoy and traveling around the country at this kind of unprecedented home, and in women's political Lisin, mobilization. So Jan just go for it, please. High will the first limit let me just say, even just shot this podcast, this conversation that we're having is an illustration of all the Seoul many, many millions really, if things that are happening that are empowering women that are informing and engaging engaging women. Of course you and I are back, I have gone back a long, long, wave seen a lot of changes. But I think I think we'd all have to agree. This is a remarkable moment for for, for women. You know, the, the, the women's March, of course was the. Largest single gathering after that poorly attended inauguration was, the largest single gathering of Americans in Washington DC. And of course in the city of Chicago. What was it a two hundred and fifty thousand people? And if you add up all over the world, because there were marches all over the place when Donald Trump was inaugurated after Naga rating, we're talking millions and millions of people all led by women. And we're so happy to see that there was a diversity in that crowd in all different ways, including a lot of men, but it was the women's March. And there were pundits, and even elected officials one who was a delegate in Virginia who said, I hope the March ends in time for the women to go home and cook dinner on. He no longer is a is a delegate. Place by a woman who he really pissed off that day thirty two year old African American woman. Right. Is now representing that that district, but there were pundits is said, this is a one off. You know, the women are going to get tired. They're going to go home. And of course, in Chicago, our second year March was even bigger than the first and far from going home. We, we now have women leading the way in so many different ways fi in the congress with the United States. Now, we have one hundred three women ninety of us are Democrats were from all over the country were all different ages starting, you know, with AO see at twenty nine years old abbey thinking our also twenty nine from Iowa. You know, I it's, it's a really beautiful thing that we're seeing women stand up and, and, and run and win. And feel a sense of, of, of power. But I wanna tell you, I think if, if you just take, for example, the challenges right now on women's reproductive rights, right? My I'm not afraid, I am not worried. I think that the Republicans have made this enormous political miscalculation. They have no clue. What is going to erupt in this in this country if they dare to overturn or close to overturn Roe v? Wade women are poised woman are not gonna go back. I mean, I there's one of the, the I guess, one of the posters that was at the women's March, and you have it in your book, women are not going back, there is this absolute sense of empowerment right now that we're not..

"Hello everyone. This is Rebecca five guest with sofi and Kelly on the voter in segment of two bras and welcome to this show where really excited about doing this. We're hoping that you will find it. Interesting invaluable, and inspirational and most important we're looking forward to sharing what we know and working together to make this dream of voting in our next woman. President come true. So let your friends snow welcome. And let's get going. Thanks. Are you listening? Heavy one. This is Kelly with two broads talking politics. We are back for our fifth episode of the vote hurt in series. I am here with my co host Sophie, hey, Sophie. Hey, Kelly and joining us again is our partner in this venture author Rebecca sigh of Hira Becca high to be here yet, thanks for joining us again. So for listeners who have not been listening to the full vote her in series. You should go back and listen to the first four episodes, but we are talking about the effort to elect the first woman president in this is an especially good time to be doing it. Because there are so many women running for president. So we're going to continue the discussion that we were having in the fourth part of the series talking about some of the systemic issues that women face in becoming elected being elected to executive positions. But especially to the. Presidency. So Rebecca where would you like to pick up our conversation on this? Well, we covered a lot of ground the other day. But you know, there were some things we touched on. And I thought we could delve more deeply, and particularly now that I think the races, you know, really heating up and just read this morning that the molar reports going to be released soon. And so these candidates are going to I'm guessing being a whole new phase of you know, what they're saying and doing and campaigning. And it may well be depending on what said about the molar report, for instance, that there are some women on the Republican side who, you know, make some noise. And so in that context thought we might, you know, start today's discussion by talking about the fact that it's, you know, not a given, and we should say that out loud and discuss it that the first woman president will be pro-choice woman or even democrat, right? And that there are certainly women on the Republican side. There may be some independent women who you know. Decide to run just as men have who don't. Share the sort of progressive agenda that the four main candidates on the democratic side share. And so I thought that would be important for us to look at. And you know, there's been a lot of discussion in the past about Nikki Haley, and you know, after she resigned from the UN ambassador position, Hugh months ago. Of course, she was asked well is your next running for president? And she said, of course, no. But then in the meanwhile, you probably saw this too. She's got a book coming out. She's got some think tank projects, and there's really, you know, the possibility of that. And what does that mean, you know for women if we have a woman president who's anti-choice and quite conservative on other women's issues? I think sometimes Republicans may be like two to devoting, you know, in general, they don't seem to like women's issues. But I think sometimes. The they sort of give themselves out when they vote for women. Well, we'll look we support strong women too. And there are Republican women like Kellyanne Conway who liked to play this sort of feminism card, even though you know, really what they're doing is often not all that supportive of other women or women's rights in general. But you know, I think that that that we've ERI well could see that just like we saw Sarah Palin nominated for vice president who is, you know, certainly, no friend to women's issues were sort of an interesting question because I I recently read a book about the history of the Kucuk clan in the mid twentieth century, and you know, basically in the nineteen twenties, and there was a whole chapter on the women leaders of the clan. And I mean, I don't think I've ever heard about this before, but the author who's brilliant..
