From the number of Pilgrims and Native Americans present at the first Thanksgiving to conflict in Congress over declaring it a national day of thanks, there are many historical facts about the holiday that are not widely known.


“Problematic Women” is celebrating the history of Thanksgiving with Melanie Kirkpatrick, author of the book “Thanksgiving: The Holiday at the Heart of the American Experience.” Kirkpatrick shares some of the little known historical facts of Thanksgiving and how the holiday has evolved into what we know it to be today.


Plus, we crown a group of 18 brave women as our “Problematic Women of the Week.”


Enjoy the show, and have a happy Thanksgiving!
