This year marked the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which granted women in the U.S. the right to vote. Although 49% of Americans say granting women the right to vote has been the most important milestone in advancing the position of the women in the country, a majority of Americans say the country still hasn’t gone far enough in giving women equal rights with men. Covering a broad range of topics on women, feminism and gender equality, here are a few podcasts to listen to.
