Podcast: How the Feminist Dream Leaves Women Unfulfilled

The Federalist
featuring Inez Feltscher Stepman

This week at the Federalist, Executive Editor Joy Pullmann wrote about how the feminist life script ignores the truth about what makes women happy and what’s biologically possible. On this episode of the Federalist Radio Hour, staff writer Bre Payton interviews Inez Stepman, senior policy analyst at the Independent Women’s Forum, about why it’s important to have honest conversations about women’s careers, dating, relationships and having children.

“We actively tell young women…you shouldn’t prioritize relationships, or marriage, or family in your twenties. Actively steer away from that,” Stepman said. “That’s really damaging. I think there’s a lot of regret that follows those decisions.”

Payton and Stepman also discuss the recent news of shady origins behind The Women’s March.
