Think Like A Lady Podcast

  • Publisher: Afroze & Dua
  • Total Episodes: 23

Welcome to Think Like a Lady! A podcast that enlightens tough issues about a woman’s place in a dominantly man’s world. Our discussions intend to stimulate thought provoking perspectives that are rarely the narrative in mainstream think tanks. From how the age of severe economic inequality has undermined women in the workforce to navigating the intricacies of the early suffragette movements who denied women’s rights to women of color.Let’s face it. Women are awesome. We’re not here to talk about us being awesome as just some empty platitude. We have some staggering data to prove it. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, as of 2019, there are now more women in medical school than men. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Education, women outpaced men in earning bachelor’s degrees by 1982, they earned more master’s degrees than men by 1987, and by 2006 they took up the majority of doctoral degrees conferred in the United States.Ok, but enough of us gloating. It seems that even though we’re just now beginning to dominate on so many frontiers, we’re still putting up with ridiculous challenges. From facing harassment in mosques, churches and other places of worship, and of course the workplace to the pink tax, Dua and Afroze talk about their own microcosmic experiences that lay bear on an intersection between their experiences as Muslim women who grew up with one foot in the west and the other foot in the east. Women have managed to conquer vast and numerous frontiers despite not being given the reigns to pioneer. It’s time we knocked men off of their high horse.
