On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Rebecca Roberts
In 1989, a 34-year-old Regents University student named Bob McDonnell wrote a thesis describing working women and feminists as “detrimental” to the family. That paper is now driving the nationwide conversation about Virginia’s race for governor — which pits McDonnell, a Republican, against Democrat Creigh Deeds. We explore the evolution of gender and politics in the Commonwealth, and examine the “statutes of limitations” voters are willing to apply to past comments of politicians.
