Women’s Rights in the Green Party USA
This is WLRN’s fourth anniversary edition! First up, hear Danielle Whitaker introduce the topic for this month’s podcast: women’s rights in the Green Party USA and in particular, what is happening to the Georgia Green Party because they decided to sign onto the Declaration for Women’s Sex-based Rights.
Next, hear WLRN’s Dana Vitalosova deliver our world news segment right before the song “Tell it Like it Is” by Tracy Chapman. Following the news, hear an excerpt of an interview Thistle did with Georgia Green Party Co-Chair, Denice Traina and then another excerpt with former Green Party member and candidate, Elaine Mastromatteo, pictured in our cover image for this month. Both women talk about their involvement in the Green Party and comment on the status of women’s rights. Next, enjoy the song “Sleep to Dream” by Fiona Apple.
Finally, don’t miss WLRN’s Sekhmet SheOwl’s scathing commentary on the state of American electoral politics in general as it relates to women, and the particular situation facing the Georgia Green Party.

CORRECTION: Denice Traina contacted us to tell us she was mistaken about Winona LaDuke still being a member of the Green Party. LaDuke ran with Ralph Nader as a Green in 2000 but has not since been a Green.
