Full Program


Part 1

We will begin with the backlash to efforts by former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and Gloria Steinem to urge women and young women in particular to vote for Hillary Clinton. We  look into the apparent split between younger and older feminists following the votes in the Iowa caucus when younger women aged 18 to 29 voted for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton by a margin of 6 to 1. Joining us first is Amanita Funaro, a student in New York City and a first time voter in the 2016 presidential race who is a passionate supporter for Bernie Sanders. We will discuss why young millennial women prefer the 74 year old Senator from Vermont to the former Secretary of State and First Lady who if elected, would be the first female president of the United States.

Part 2

Then we will get another opinion on which of the two Democratic presidential candidates is winning the feminist vote and speak with Gloria Feldt, the Co-Founder and President of Take The Lead and author of “No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think About Power”. The former president of Planned Parenthood, she joins us to discuss why younger voters find Bernie Sanders more authentic than Hillary Clinton and what Clinton can do to keep millennials in the tent and motivated to vote in the event Bernie loses the nomination to her.


Part 3

Then finally we speak with Emile Hokayem, a Senior Fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies in London who has an article at Foreign Policy, “Obama’s Disastrous Betrayal of the Syrian Rebels: How the White House is handing victory to Bashar al-Assad, Russia and Iran." We discuss the gains Russia and Iran are making on the ground in Syria and whether Saudi Arabia and Turkey will try to counter Putin without the backing of the U.S.
