Down With The Pink Tax! (Jan 25th, 2019)

Dame It All To Hell

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 Race
The 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 Debate
Have 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.”
