Description

Welcome to The Women! Every episode, host Rose Reid follows one woman’s extraordinary journey. And during this special mini-season, Rose talks to some of the brave, brazen, and badass women from her home state of Georgia—where two Senate seats and the balance of power—is up for grabs. As a seventh-generation Georgian, Rose wants to show the Georgia she knows: the powerful builders and dreamers entrenched in the outcome of the Georgia Runoffs. She speaks with attorneys, politicians, writers, and policy experts from both sides of the aisle. There may only be four candidates on the ballot for Senate on January 5th, but make no mistake—it’s the women on the ground in Georgia who will determine the future of this country. Join Rose on her journey to reveal the key players in one of democracy’s most contentious battles for power.

Episode Date
Stacey Abrams on Fear, Freedom, and Love
1805
Stacey Abrams is on everyone's mind right now. In this "Part 2" episode recapping last week’s historical events, we're revisiting our conversation with Stacey Abrams. Within 24 hours that Georgians sent its first African American Senator and its first Jewish senator to Washington DC - the Capitol was stormed. And just within days of the historic turnout (4.4M+ Georgians voting in a runoff), Republican state legislators are already at work to curtail future mail-in voting. After Stacey lost the 2018 Georgia Governor's race to Brian Kemp, she created Fair Fight Action, focused on voter protection. There is a lot of speculation on whether Stacey will run again in 2022, but Stacey's priority is still to make sure everyone can vote, and everyone's vote is counted. Rose and Stacey spoke last spring, and had a candid and intimate conversation about hard lessons learned from the Governor's race, the curious life of introverts during quarantine, and what the future holds for this entrepreneur-turned-politician-moonlighting-romance novelist. Before Stacey became a tax attorney, a grassroots organizer, and an entrepreneur, she attended the HBCU Spelman College in Atlanta and received her law degree from Yale University. Catch voter crusader - Helen Butler - from the Coalition for the People's Agenda's, lean in towards joy at the end of this episode :) Fresh episodes of The Women out every Thursday!

Okay, Who's Really Showing Up to Vote?
1852
Welcome to The Women with Rose Reid. Today is Election Day in Georgia!! We continue with our blitz mini-season profiling the amazing women on the ground in Georgia whose work will determine two Senate seats, and party control.  We get two very different perspectives on this blue wave that we see taking Georgia: Barbara Krinsky is a 90 year old self professed "Reagan Republican" making the flip (in part because of candidate Reverend Raphael Warnock's convincing and sincere TV ads). And Park Cannon is the youngest person elected to the Georgia State Legislature from District 58 (representing the historic Old Fourth Ward where Martin Luther King Jr. was born and later preached). The nation is watching with anticipation as they follow Stacey Abrams' and Fair Fight's footsteps, championing voting rights and registration. And now the world is witnessing the changing landscape of the deep south. "My Vote Dont Count" by YellowPain Find us on Instagram @TheWomenPod // @RoseReid Special thanks to Wendy Zukerman!

How to Champion Infrastructure, and LGBTQ Rights, in Georgia?
2347
Welcome to the Women with Rose Reid. We continue with our blitz mini-season profiling the amazing women on the ground in Georgia whose work will determine the upcoming election for two Senate seats, and party control. We are just days away from the election on January 5th, and more than 2.5 Million votes have been cast - breaking state records for voter turnout in a runoff election.  In this episode: environmentalist, transit activist, and former Atlanta City Council President - Cathy Woolard. Cathy was the first woman to be President of the Atlanta City Council, (and the first openly gay elected official in Georgia) and during her tenure, she championed the Atlanta Beltline, a rails to trails program, which has since garnered over $1 Billion in private development for the surrounding area. She also created Atlanta’s first-ever energy policy and passed a local ordinance banning discrimination based on sexual-orientation, the first of its kind in Georgia. Cathy is also a regular on the weekly bipartisan conversations on FOX 5, The Georgia Gang hosted by Lori Geary, alongside Janelle King, who was previously on the show. We get Cathy's perspective on how this election can impact infrastructure and LGBTQ+ rights in Georgia. And Cathy gives some advice - on those pursuing social justice, and coming out. Thanks to listener Kaitlin Barrer in Denver for reading the credits!

Black Women, the "Backbone" of Democracy?
2092
The name Helen Butler has grassroots hall-of-fame status in Georgia. Helen has worked closely with Stacey Abrams and Fair Fight, but has been doing voter outreach for decades. This year their work has been more important--and in some ways, more difficult--than it ever has been before. And yet, Helen's team has registered tens of thousands of voters across Georgia - from the coast to the Piedmont. Helen directs the Coalition of the People's Agenda that helps get out the vote in African American communities. She grew up in Madison, Georgia and was one of the first few students to integrate the University of Georgia, and was a VP of human resource for many years. This election, Helen maintains her focus holding representatives accountable on issues like race, voting rights, and COVID relief. Whether she’s asking Loeffler, Purdue, Warnock, or Ossoff, the main question is, “What will your policies do for our communities?”  "Georgia On My Mind" reimagined by - Las Cafeteras, QVLN, & Sergio Mendoza - the song is a collaboration with the New Georgia Project - created to support Georgia and get out the vote. For voting questions visit Georgia.gov On our next episode we discuss the changing landscape of Georgia with environmentalist and transit advocate, Cathy Woolard who was the first woman, and openly gay person, to be President of the Atlanta City Council.

Why Local Democrats Think They'll Win Georgia
1849
Longtime Georgia State Senator Nan Orrock is noticing a seismic shift among her Republican colleagues. There are always fissures in power, she says, but none she has seen this deep. "This is not typical," Nan says - everything about this election is atypical. What are the democratic candidates, Reverend Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, offering Georgians? Rose asks Nan, what are the issues that matter most to Georgia voters? How are the Democrats planning when historically, runoffs have very low participation rate? Nan also gives her take on incumbent Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. On the next episode Rose sits down with Republican Janelle King and gets her point of view from the other side of the aisle! #georgia #atlanta #staceyabrams #ParkCannon #NanOrrock #JosieDuffyRice #democrats #vote #trump #Warnock #Ossoff #flip Learn more about your ad choices.

Josie Duffy Rice Redefines Justice in America, Georgia-Style
2519
Welcome to this blitz mini-season of The Women, where host Rose Reid investigates the runoff election that has the world watching Georgia, and the women who make all the difference. Atlanta native Josie Duffy Rice is the host of the podcast Justice in America. She is also a friend, new mom, ultimate dance buddy, and a fierce advocate. Josie is a writer, lawyer, and President of The Appeal, a platform for journalist watchdogs investigating the criminal justice system in niche areas and at local levels. Half a million people in our home state of Georgia are under correctional control—the largest rate of any state in the union. It affects a lot of Georgians, and it's a hot topic for a lot of Georgia voters. In this interview, Rose and Josie talk about what defunding the police really means, how the election on January 5th could impact 100,000 prisoners in Georgia, and how facing the horrors of the criminal justice system every day paradoxically gives Josie hope.  You can find us on your phone @thewomenpod and @jduffyrice.

Betrayed Nurses, Global Scientists Explain Our Future with COVID19
1721
How did this virus begin? How did it jump from animals to humans? Why do we not have testing available so we can resume our lives? We're at least a year away from a vaccine, and we are still filled with questions, and some people are filled with anger. In this episode we will hear from hospital staff, epidemiologists, & biosecurity experts who are working tirelessly to relieve the patients and the workers of this crisis from around the world:  Dr. Emma Hodcroft is a molecular biologist in Switzerland tracking the CoronaVirus in real-time. Her work reveals how the CoronaVirus jumped from animals to humans, and can distinguish if a COVID-19 patient caught the virus from someone in China, Seattle, or in their own neighborhood.  Professor Raina MacIntyre is a biosecurity expert in Australia and explains why testing is paramount to our safety and the superiority of N-95 masks.  Dr. Saskia Popescu is a senior infection prevention epidemiologist in Arizona who explains how much more social distancing we can expect. Dr. Seema Yasmin is the Director of the Stanford Health Communication Initiative and describes how women will be impacted by the pandemic. Stephanie, a nurse in Brittany, France, shares her frustration at the lack of preparedness to protect herself, her coworkers, and her patients.  And we’ll check back in with Antoinette Ward, the nurse practitioner who created, and is leading testing for COVID19, at a major hospital in Atlanta. And next week, we'll have an interview with Stacey Abrams! We'll talk about love, friendship, and how COVID19 will further impact voter suppression.

Pregnant women all over the world are facing tough choices as concerns rise around giving birth in a hospital where they are more likely to get exposed or contract the CoronaVirus.

Rose talks to Kate Dirks, a nurse practitioner and midwife in Atlanta, Georgia who works in one of the busiest birthing centers in the United States about how COVID-19 has changed her practice, and what medical professionals are doing to protect new moms, new babies, and their staff.
