My recent HuffPost piece -- "For Pope Francis: A To-Do List on Women" -- made the web rounds and landed on the desk of Robin Morgan. She asked me to be a guest on her show "Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan," which I happily did. The show, which you can find here, aired on 5/3. On the same show you can hear Robin's interview with her first male guest ever, Jimmy Carter, and with Crunk Feminist Collective co-founder Dr. Brittney Cooper.

"Women's Media Center Live with Robin Morgan" is a weekly CBS radio broadcast that airs in Washington, D.C., and has a national and international (67 countries) online audience at iTunes and podcast at www.WMCLive.com.

Robin is an award-winning poet, novelist, political theorist, feminist activist, journalist, editor, and best-selling author. Her books include the now-classic anthologies Sisterhood Is Powerful, Sisterhood Is Global, and Sisterhood Is Forever: The Women's Anthology for A New Millennium. Recent books include A Hot January: Poems 1996-1999; Saturday's Child: A Memoir; and her best-selling The Demon Lover: The Roots of Terrorism.

A recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Prize (Poetry) and numerous other honors, and a former Editor-in-Chief of Ms. magazine, she also founded The Sisterhood Is Global Institute and co-founded The Women's Media Center. An architect and leader of contemporary U.S. feminism, she has also been a leader in the international women's movement for 30 years.
