Join celebrated comedy writers Merrill Markoe and Megan Koester as they explore the increasingly relevant question – “Why the hell are women still being treated like second class citizens?” Merrill and Megan will be joined by a special guest moderator as they discuss issues from their latest Audible release, “The Indignities of Being a Woman”, such as body image, marriage, sex, and mental illness. They’ll examine what it was like to be a woman in the past versus what it’s like now, when women are constantly told equality between the sexes exists but reality proves otherwise.
