We talk to Heritage Foundation fellow and working mother of six Rachel Greszler about the so-called gender wage gap and the celebrities who continue to promote the debunked idea. Rachel tells how women can fight for ourselves in the workplace and the ways the free market is the greatest equalizer. We also break down Ms. Monopoly, a new version of the classic game that gives a leg up to female players.

 

We also cover:

 

—Cancel culture takes another victim. “Dancing With the Stars” contestant and Netflix “Queer Eye” host Karamo was forced to delete his Twitter account after backlash for saying nice things about former White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

—Discussing the student activists who have gone viral in their protests against climate change, we talk about the moral problems with using children as political mouthpieces. —Taylor Swift announced she’s now “obsessed” with politics.

—Our Problematic Woman of the Week is Scarlett Payton Bolar, born Sept. 12 to our co-host Kelsey Bolar. We give you an update directly from Kelsey on her daughter and where she got her name. Listen in the podcast below.

    There’s one thing I would like to ask all these women who say they will not have children unless climate change is solved:

    If you in a first or second world country don’t have children, do you think the children born in Third World countries will grow up to solve the problem?
