Episode details
The Rethinking Feminism panel at Harvard, April 27, 2023 (from L to R: Christine Emba, Erika Bachiochi, Louise Perry and Mary Harrington)

One of the questions of this podcast has been: How do we begin to rethink feminism — given the fact that, in the current era, so many women are so unhappy? A group of powerhouse writers and thinkers gathered at Harvard last month to contemplate that very question. My guest on the podcast today moderated that panel, which, one could argue, marked a major turning point in feminist thought.


Erika Bachiochi is an American legal scholar and author, and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. She’s also the founder and director of the Wollstonecraft Project at the Abigail Adams Institute, which publishes a new online journal, Fairer Disputations. Her latest book is The Rights of Women: Reclaiming a Lost Vision.

Erika Bachiochi is my guest, today on Lean Out.
