Variety's Mo Ryan

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel co-host alongside Variety's Chief TV Critic Mo Ryan. First, Mo chats about her recent, thought-provoking piece on the progress and pitfalls of TV's depiction of rape, including her thoughts on Game of Thrones's deluge of rape scenes and Jessica Jones's perspective-shifting treatment of trauma. We also discuss the internet's irritating reaction to Teen Vogue's scathing political op-ed. Later, we answer a Lady Problem for our coworker Holly, who cannot get over this THR article in which seven white dudes discuss race and gender.
