This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Teo Bugbee, Rachel Handler, and Hazel Cills put a rush on the episode so you can listen to it while you get ready (or show solidarity) for the International Women’s Day strike. The three of us go back in time and talk about labor trailblazer/movie star Olivia de Havilland, who happens to also be one of the narrators of Ryan Murphy's latest FX series, Feud. We delve into the first episode of the show as well, which has a strange way of looking at aging women. Later, it's the return of our segment "Fucked-Up-in-a-Good-Way Movie About Women of the Week." We talk about the 1979 classic Norma Rae, in which Sally Field kicks ass unionizing a textile factory in North Carolina. Onward, comrades!
Find Rachel, Hazel, and Teo on Twitter and say hi, and call us up with your Lady Problems at 205-677-5239 — yes, that is 205-677-LADY, and if you think we’re not going to remind people of that every single week, then you must not know Lady Problems.
