OFF-KILTER with Rebecca Vallas

May 9, 2017

As we commemorate this week’s ‘Day Without a Woman’ strike, this week’s Off-Kilter is an episode without Jeremy Slevin. Instead, Rebecca is joined by Michelle Chen, co-host of Dissent’s Belabored podcast, to unpack what this week’s strikes say about the future of establishment feminism. Next, Sarah McBride of the Human Rights Campaign, and the first openly transgender speaker at a major party convention, discusses the fight ahead for the LGBTQ community under Trump — and why she’s managed to remain optimistic. Next, Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation, joins to break down Trump’s other war on the media playing out quietly at the FCC. And finally, with Republican efforts to repeal and “replace” the Affordable Care Act continuing to advance full speed ahead, Rebecca sits down with three women whose personal stories highlight how the GOP’s Medicaid cuts would set the clock back on disability rights 50 years or more.
