Jill Filipovic is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times, a lawyer, and the author of The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness. In her book, Jill advocates for prioritizing women's happiness and pleasure in forming public policy. On this episode, Jill shares how the cult of female sacrifice does a disservice to women, how attitudes toward sex are disconnected from reality, and the importance of working both to change the rigged system and to make personal and cultural changes within the existing system. Jill also talks about her bold career path, from working at a law firm to becoming a full-time writer living in Kenya.
Writer Jill Filipovic on the feminist pursuit of happiness
Imagine a world in which women weren’t forced to struggle for equality in a system rigged against them. Imagine instead, the ideal world of journalist and author Jill Filipovic – one in which happiness for women is the driving force behind policies like fair pay and legal recognition of best friendships. In that world, Jill says, not only are women happier and healthier, but most everyone else (read: people who aren’t white men) are better off, too. In this episode of Politically Re-Active, your favorite hosts sit down with Jill to talk about her policy ideas as well as Ivanka Trump’s brand of “empowerment”, white lady feminism, and the evil of the all-male photo op.

On January 21st, the day after the inauguration of President Trump, an estimated 150,000 women are expected to march on Washington. Our host Kathy Sheridan talks to activist Ailbhe Smyth, American journalist Jill Filipovic and broadcaster Sarah Carey about why Trump has got women marching, about successful female-led protests through history and about how the ailing Democrat party need to mobilise as they face into four years of Trump.
