Inside 254 Presents: A Collaborative Roundtable Discussion with Raging Chicken Out d’Coup Podast on Sexual Misconduct in PA Capitol; Believing Women; and How to Fight Inequity in our Power Structures

December 22, 2017

In this special end of 2017 episode, we share our very first collaborative podcast roundtable with our friends, Kevin Mahoney and Sean Kitchen, over at Raging Chicken Radio's Out d'Coup Podcast. Our passionate discussion covers recent allegations of sexual misconduct in Pennsylvania state government and the need to hold the PA Democratic Party accountable for its role in perpetuating a culture of repressive sexism. We also delve into inequitable power structures and why it is necessary to flip the script and start believing women who are speaking out about sexual harassment, sexual assault, and toxic sexist culture. We end our discussion on note of hope and a list of women candidates running for office in 2018 and what you can do to fight unbalanced power structures in your own life and networks.

Be sure to check out Raging Chicken's Out d'Coup podcast and consider donating to support their important, independent, progressive work in Pennsylvania. These structures don't change themselves, so we are all in this together!

Expert Extra #14: Attorney Bridget Brave on sexual assault in the news

December 1, 2017

This week's Expert Extra features attorney Bridget Brave discussing sexual assault and what seems to be a potential cultural shift toward believing women as well as less tolerance for male abuse of power. As we see more high profile male public figures and officials experience consequences for their past predatory behaviors, how will this moment impact the behavior, expectations, and responses of non-high-profile men and women as we move forward? Bridget practiced law in Wisconsin for seven years as a juvenile public defender, a felony-level prosecutor, and an advocate for children of violent crime, and uses her legal expertise to contextualize this conversation.
