Released Friday, 26th February 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
Carrie Lukas joins the podcast to talk about this month’s policy focus—Avoiding Paid Leave Pitfalls. We discuss why making the emergency COVID paid leave benefits permanent will undermine existing paid leave benefits, raise taxes, and reduce wages for poor workers, as well as limit women’s employment opportunities.  

Carrie Lukas is the president of the Independent Women’s Forum. She is the co-author of Liberty Is No War on Women, and the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Women, Sex, and Feminism. She is also a contributor to National Review, Forbes.com, and Acculturated; and is the vice president for policy and economics at Independent Women’s Voice.

She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth. Once a week, every week, She Thinks host Beverly Hallberg is joined by guests who cut through the clutter and bring you the facts.

You don’t have to keep up with policy and politics to understand how issues will impact you and the people you care about most. You just have to keep up with us.

We make sure you have the information you need to come to your own conclusions. Because let’s face it, you’re in control of your own life and can think for yourself.
