Too often, women are thought of as a monolithic bloc, and they were often discussed that way throughout the 2016 election. But women are in fact divided on major issues. Hosted by Liz Plank and Hitha Herzog, Divided States of Women uncovers the complicated, multifaceted, intersectional debates that make up the life of the modern American woman.  Liz (a progressive) and Hitha (a conservative) are friends who get along, but don't always agree. They'll bring prominent feminist thinkers, politicians and celebs onto the show as guests, and they'll report from the field to hear from women around the country.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was a once a refugee herself, and talks to Ravi and Grant about her story. That experience has helped shape her opinions about America's role in the refugee crisis (or lack thereof), and why she feels strongly about the Trump administration's approach to taking in more refugees. She also talks about humanitarian intervention, how her views have evolved on these issues, and her disappointment in Aung San Suu Kyi over the treatment of the Rohingya.
