About this Episode

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was accosted on the steps of Congress by Florida Congressman Ted Yoho. Her response, which has spread quickly across the interwebs, is a great example of how we can handle challenges to our power. We discuss the pattern of men using their women and daughters as a defense for the misogynist behavior. We learn about the history of "bitch" and how we feel about the term in general. We have so much to learn from AOC and the other powerful women of color that are leading the progressive movement in Washington.
