Report in Review

I have been meaning to talk about today's topic for weeks, but wanted to wait until after the holidays. When I got to chat with Stacy London after her talk at the Frick (read about that here), she mentioned a new show one of her friends was doing - Divided States of Women.

I think this series is fantastic. It's a series of short videos, about 10 minutes each, and each episode tackles a different topic that women today are facing. Each episode is approached in an inclusive way - the point is to hear more women's voices and opinions! The host, Liz Plank, does a great job making each episode interesting and informative at the same time. The length of each episode lets you learn about something new while being short enough that you can watch it whenever you have a few spare minutes. There's also a podcast, which I haven't finished listening to yet, but am also enjoying!


One of my favorite episodes is about the power of social media. In the episode, Plank interviews a disability advocate, and they talk about how the Internet and social media can help spread awareness. It really hit home with me, and I thought it got at the core of what I'm trying to do with this blog! I wasn't able to embed the episode, but you can check it out here. And of course, I can't talk about my favorite episodes without mentioning the most recent, where Plank talks to Stacy London (watch here).

Divided States of Women focuses on some really important, but not not frequently discussed, topics. Check it out here and let me know what you think!
