Gail Heriot, professor at University of San Diego School of Law and commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, joins the podcast to explain how legal changes made to the Civil Rights Act in the 1990s forced radical politics and easy offense out of academia and directly into corporate America. Gail convincingly explains how concepts like microaggressions, racial identity politics, and respecting the 87 genders took off in the ’90s thanks to a combination of malincentives written into the law, bad court decisions, and a hefty dose of private sector CYA. She gives Inez an alternative explanation for the origins and timeline of wokeness.

High Noon is an intellectual download featuring conversations that make possible a free society. The podcast features interesting thinkers from all parts of the political spectrum to discuss the most controversial subjects of the day in a way that hopes to advance our common American future.


Hosted by Inez Stepman of Independent Women’s Forum.

    Great discussion. I remember when the trainings were introduced (and the egg shells for everyone in the workplace to walk on).  Professor Heriot is absolutely correct that the harassment industrial complex must continue to gin up threats to justify its existence.
