GenForward on Our Body Politic Podcast

Our Body Politic is a podcast created and hosted by Farai Chideya. Several episodes feature GenForward political scientists Drs. Jenn Jackson and Diane Wong. The weekly episodes document the  “ways that women and all women of color gain and use power for public good.” The episodes draw on data from the GenForward survey and connect to ongoing issues in health, politics, and the economy. Check back here for featured episodes and follow this link for access to the entire episode listing!

"We're not here to give voice or to tell the story. Rather, we see ourselves very much so as learning from folks who are already experiencing the types of injustices and the types of concerns that we amplify with our work."

Dr. Jenn Jackson, Assistant Professor at Syracuse University, GenForward Researcher
