Beto O’Money & Conway Tweeting
Beto Breaks a RecordThe Dames kick this episode off with Beto and the record amount of money the middle-aged, white guy was able to raise in the first 24-hour period after he announced his run for the presidency. Kelly and Tracy know that anyone believes they can run for the presidency in this day in age, but how sexist is it that men raise the most money and get the best media attention? It seems women must prove themselves qualified to be president and men don’t.The Button: Boys Club at the Grand CanyonThis week’s Button centers on an openly gay female superintendent who was appointed head of the park rangers at the Grand Canyon. You guessed it...the men she oversaw wanted her out and ultimately filed a complaint. Even though an investigation eventually cleared her, she ultimately resigned. You might be surprised by how Tracy and Kelly react.#MeToo on Wall StreetOn Wall Street, #MeToo is often overshadowed by he-said, she-said situations. The Dames explore the workplace consequences of consensual and forced sexual relations. How do previous relationships fit into that grey area and what happens when those relationships end?George Conway's TweetsFinally, the Dames offer their two cents on the Kellyanne Conway - George Conway - Donald Trump love/hate triangle. Kelly and Tracy agree that George should advocate for his Kellyanne’s success and not threaten to tear it down because he has issues with President Trump, and they offer an interesting theory about what might really be the purpose behind his tweets.Learn more about your ad choices.

Life As A Modern Mom
We Need Men’s Help to End Toxic MasculinityToday’s episode beings with one of our Dames favorite topics, toxic masculinity. The Dames mull over having good men on the side of women feminists. Surprisingly, they both agree that it can be beneficial to females and possibly help men break down toxic masculinity at the same time.Life as a Modern MomThe Dames chat with guests Bethany Johnson and Margaret M. Quinlan about their book, You’re Doing It Wrong!: Mothering, Media and Medical Expertise. Their book is rooted in the journey of motherhood from conception to early toddler and how many outside influences are at work on women and mothers in today’s world. The Dames and the authors touch on a variety of ideas from the book like how women of today are similar to those from the Victorian Era. They also discuss the amount of access women have in today's world but their inability to utilize it all due to varying constraints.The Button: Woman Cyclist Stopped in RaceThe Button this week stars a cycling race in Belgium and the assumption it took on its women athletes. The Dames get a chuckle at the fact a women cycler caught up to her men counterparts that started their race 10 minutes ahead of her. However, the Dames find great fault in the actions taken during the race by her doing so.Women Supporting Women: Investor StyleFinally, The Dames rave about a flux that is slowly taking place. In a world where a small amount of investor money goes to women entrepreneurs, there is a group of women investors that are looking to make a change. They are investing their money into other women and their ideas. The Dames applaud this as it shows women being proactive in supporting each other to be successful. Learn more about your ad choices.

A Delicate (But Strong) Ball of Pink Yarn
Women & The GrammysWomen dominated the Grammys and the Dames took notice! Today’s episode kicks off with their discussion of the show and all the power women there, from the host to the performances to the winners. It was all things women and the Dames know it’s time to get on the train.Justin Fairfax & Sexual MisconductYet another man has been accused of sexual misconduct. This time it’s Virginia Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, with multiple accusations against him. He’s calling for due process because he believes all of the “encounters” were consensual. The Dames pose the question: Why is the first response to accusations not “I’m sorry, I thought it was consensual?” Is there arrogance behind a man who chooses to run politically knowing the incidents that have taken place in his past?  A Debate Over PixarPixar launched a new short film, Pearl, about a woman (represented by a ball of pink yarn) who goes to work in a place where her colleagues are only white men. The short film is tackling the idea of toxic masculinity in the workplace. The Dames engage in an intense conversation as one of them (can you guess who?) has a very difficult time getting past the fact that a woman is represented by a ball of pink yarn.The Button: Gender & Running for PresidentThe Button in this episodes revolves around exploring the idea of sexism as a shield. The Dames explore how politics should be reported when there are more women than ever running for president. How does criticism work for topics that would normally be non-gendered? Will questions be asked of women candidates that wouldn’t of a man? The Dames decide this is not something that will be easily answered, but rather something that will be a continuous conversation for the next year and a half.Learn more about your ad choices.

Can't Read My *Resting Bitch Face*
This is an exciting week on the show as The Dames are stepping up their game and re-launching their brand. Make sure to check out all of our new stuff on social media!Can You Tell Someone They Have Resting Bitch Face?Resting bitch face has The Dames up in arms. Apparently, some women are having “grin lifts” done to fix their resting bitch face. The Dames agree that this is an extension of the sexist expectation on women to look and act a certain way. It drives Kelly bananas and Tracy, while she claims to have an epic resting bitch face, thinks that people just need to stop telling women how their faces look.Diversity Issues at Prestigious Paul, Weiss Law FirmIntentionality is something that is lacking from elite law firms and new partner class. The Dames discuss how there is a lack of women partners in law firms and, when they do exist, they are given the generally “womanly” roles. Why can’t men plan cocktail parties? NYC Restaurant Nello Cutting Back on Call Girls?The Button this week revolves around a restaurant in New York that won’t allow women to sit alone at the bar in an effort to cut down on call girls in their establishment. Not surprisingly, The Dames do not agree with this sexist rule. Why is it automatically assumed that an attractive female sitting alone at a bar is an escort? Kevin O’Brien Fired Amidst Sexual Harassment AllegationsThe Dames examine the hiring process in politics after Bill DeBlasio aide Kevin O’Brien was fired from his position after it was revewaled he had sexually harassed women at previous jobs. The Dames admit that calls for references are lacking in the industry and many acquire jobs by word of mouth from friends. Kelly brings up intentionality and the lack of using it to break cycles.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Down With The Pink Tax!
It may come as no shocker but it is still cold as f@#! outside. On your favorite podcast that tackles sexism big and small, the Dames cover the 2020 Presidential Race, a new study with surprising findings regarding mothers and sisters and the infamous Gillette ad.Women in the 2020 RaceThe Dames start this episode on a high note. More women are entering the presidential race on the Democratic side, and that is grounds for some excitement and possible change. With more women entering the race, Kelly and Tracy argue that this could lead the presidential race to become a human choice versus a gender choice.Female Family Members Leads to Conservatism?This week’s Button is a puzzle for the Dames. New research shows having daughters makes men and women more Republican and having sisters makes men more conservative, sparking one crazy conversation. Interestingly, it goes from the idea that men’s ideologies are driven by the females in their lives, to the notion of “women and children first!” into lifeboats on a sinking ship, to aggression in young boys, and then it all circles back to a desire to protect. Whew!Gillette Ad Sparks Internet DebateHave you seen the newest Gillette Ad? The ad features various shots of men calling each other out to be better in terms of their sexist behavior. The ad ends with the text “It’s only by challenging ourselves to do more that we can get closer to our best.” Kelly and Tracy discuss the ad and the moral outrage that has surrounded it, leading Tracy to tell everyone to just “take a breath.”Learn more about your ad choices.

My Snow Is Bigger Than Your Snow
Kelly and Tracy have survived “Snurlough” in DC!Iceland Aims to End the Gender GapThe Dames start this episode off with examining Iceland’s new law to put an end to the gender gap 2022 by paying men and women in the same job position equal amounts. Tracy is unsure, thinking this new law may backfire on women already in higher paid positions. Kelly ponders if qualification should be the only basis on hiring for a job. Is this law a solution to a worldwide sexist problem?The Button: Banned Vibrator!A Robotic Vibrator that was banned at the Consumer Electronic Show is the hot topic of the Button. Kelly is having a hard time keeping her shit together while Tracy tells her about the vibrator, a sex robot, and some virtual reality porn. Once Kelly is able to get it together, the Dames bounce around the idea that women’s sexual independence may be frightening for men.A First for Female MarinesFor the first time in history, a platoon of female Marines will be training alongside their counterparts at a joint bootcamp. Our dames explore whether this lucky mistake could, indeed, be beneficial to both sides and the sexism that has been known to occur in the military.Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly Finally, if you know the Dames you knew that the R. Kelly documentary would eventually come up in an episode. While the episode is not for the faint of heart, Kelly gives a brief rundown of it and the Dames question if anything will come from it or if the music industry will keep him untouchable.Learn more about your ad choices.
