1. Very interesting....

 

Isn't it wonderful when we listen to each other. We need "Sunday shows" filled with this sort of conversation, instead of listening to pundits yell and scream at each other. NOTHING is gained by the media today, when guests and hosts simply pontificate and blow their opinions on the audience.

Good video. Good for these women for listening to each other. Maybe agree, maybe don't....but they hear each other and respect where each other is coming from.

2. Vice has lots of these

they'll have talks like this with people living in the same community but have different political views and support different candidates and they facilitate civil discussions that are very interesting.

3. My favorite was the woman in the pink sweater.

Probably because her experiences are so similar to my own, but also because she seemed so self-aware. Like when she admitted that even though she isn't rich, she gets away with speeding tickets because she "looks like this". She was also the one who pointed out that "pro-life" tends to ignore the "life" of the pregnant woman in favor of the cells forming in her uterus.

I agree, it was a very good video, but I did want to scream at a few of them. Probably good that they didn't put me in the panel. And about that...why are all of these women so young? Why don't they have older women on the panel--women who had to fight for the rights that these young women are currently enjoying? I suspect there's an answer, but I didn't hear it.

4. To reduce variables, they chose people of the same age and gender

who vary by income, race, and religion. This helps these women look at what they may have in common more than not.

Age would bring a whole different conversation with people who have varying experiences due to the generation they grew up in and may try to discredit each other for lack of experience. We've seen it on the talking head shows on cable TV where they devolve into shouting matches and insults. It's insane.
