Dr. Gina Barreca developed a smart mouth as a young girl in Brooklyn. She used her wit and talent for the quick come-back to fight off generations of male ivy league prejudice while attending Dartmouth.
Today her mouth gets smarter every year. As a professor of English Literature and Feminist Theory at the University of Connecticut, Gina teaches the next generation of young women leaders and she sees it all. She is astonished that we are still confronting the same issues that women faced in the feminist movement of the 70’s. And she works every day to shine the light of ridicule on the culture that keeps women from becoming all they can be.
Gina has written eight books, which have been translated into seven languages. Her newest book is It’s Not That I’m Bitter: How I Learned to Stop Worrying about Visible Panty Lines and Conquered The World.
Dr. Nancy and Gina discuss it all and how laughter can bond women together better than a hug. Listen to them toss the issues back and forth in this lighthearted look at women and society.
