Produced by Nouvelles Écoutes.
On January 21st, La Poudre was in Washington to cover the Women’s March, a rally that gathered half a million people the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States.
« La Marche » is a sensory experience, in which voices mingle with chants and music from January 21st. It is a reflexion on the intersectional identity that 21st century feminism is undeniably heading towards.
Lauren Bastide, the host, met with women who marched. And with women who didn’t. She also met with journalists, thinkers and activists for in- depth conversations about this historical event that united, but also divided, American feminists. Washington Post journalist Christine Emba, civil rights advocate Kimberlé Crenshaw who coined the term « intersectional », feminist playwright Eve Ensler, « Stuff Mom Never Told You » podcast host Caroline Ervin, and policy director of the National Association for Lesbian Rights Julie Gonen.
This english version of "La Marche" is available exclusively on Nouvelles Ecoutes’ website.
A french-dubbed version can be found on La Poudre podcast feed on iTunes, Deezer, Stitcher and all of your favorite podcast apps.
All the voices and sounds of “La Marche” were recorded in Washington D.C. from January the 19th and January the 22nd by Lauren Bastide for La Poudre.
