The Waves
Gender, Relationships, Feminism
The Waves is a weekly conversation about news and culture examined through the lens of gender and feminism. Every other Thursday, join the hosts—Slate staff writer Christina Cauterucci, Marcia Chatelain of Georgetown University, Thirst Aid Kit's Nichole Perkins, and Slate Podcasts' June Thomas—for frank discussions about the ways gender shapes everything. Our new name reflects generations of women from the various waves of feminism, the sound waves that carry us to your ears, and the waves we intend to make.
