Coup de Pod II: Power to the Pussy Episode 1 – Suffering for Suffrage

Listen to Episode  Duration 1:23:11

In the second “Coup de Pod” episode in Stuff What You Tell Me history, the show is finally taken over by someone capable. Awesome storyteller Dominique Reviglio takes us down the path of the history of women’s rebellion; on a journey through the millennia of both oppression and rebellion, before exploring the militant Suffragette movement that erupted in Britain in the first decades of the 20th century.

One thought on “Coup de Pod II: Power to the Pussy Episode 1 – Suffering for Suffrage

  1. Wow, such an in-depth and totally interesting account of the beginnings of the women’s movement. Why didn’t we learn about this in school? Emily Davidson should be every girls hero.
