Welcome to Women Bridging the Gap, a free-wheeling, conversation podcast co-hosted by Lenya Wilson, a Black woman and Alexandra D’Italia, a white woman.

Eavesdrop on our conversation while we discuss race and womanhood at the hearth level. We began this podcast in response to the murder of George Floyd, Amy Cooper’s weaponization of her white femininity, and the subsequent uprising. We believe that honesty, openness, and love can bridge the gap between people of color and white people. So let’s just call it what it is—what do Black women need to say to white women? What do we all face together? What do we need to own? Where and how do we show compassion? How do we move forward together?

Yet this podcast is not all about race. Boomers, Gen Xers, Millennials, and Gen Zs—what can we learn from one another? We want to explore what womanhood means in today’s world. We want to embrace all our contradictions and still move forward. We realize we’re two cisgendered women talking—and we hope to include LGBTQ voices in the future. You are part of this conversation too. We want to include all People of Color. Your voices all matter. And, sometimes, we just want to talk about our graying hair and living in a youth-oriented society.

We’re good friends, and we hope to share our journey and our evolution with you. We’re passionate, loud, funny, non-judgmental, and opinionated. We are feminists. We believe in abundance. We’re not journalists, but we’re open about our experiences and eager to learn from others. We want to empower ourselves and others. Did we say we were loud?

We want you to be in on our conversation—and help us move forward one conversation at a time.

I’m learning so much and engaged as I listen. This is an essential podcast. And it’s very approachable for people who don’t identify as a woman, too. ★★★★★
