What Does a Global Women’s Movement Look Like?

February 6, 2017  • The Bridge Podcast


After seeing the mass mobilization of women across the world during the Women’s March, an important question arises: What does a global women’s movement look like? In this episode of The Bridge, African women’s rights leaders Joy Phumaphi and Sisonke Msimang discuss their experiences working towards equality for women globally, and the future of the movement. This thought-provoking conversation is hosted by Peggy Clark, vice president of policy programs at the Aspen Institute and a leader in the global women’s movement.

Women of different generations and geographies desperately need one another to share wisdom, ideas, and goals to move women forward and to break the glass ceiling. The Bridge podcast, a project of Aspen Global Health and Development, brings wise women – and a few good men – of different generations together into conversations about what matters most. The Bridge slows things down, and puts two people with deep knowledge and compassion together for important conversations.
