Episode: An Unbridled History of Bachelorette Parties

Even though bachelor parties have been around since ancient Sparta, why did it take so long for bachelorettes to catch on. It was until 1998 for Cosmopolitan to use the term “bachelorette party!” Because the raucous pre-wedding shindigs haven’t been around very long, since bachelor parties were for grooms and showers were for brides. Cristen and Caroline explore the social and sexual symbolism of the rise of the bachelorette party.

Taking notes! Hope my friends and sisters do what I want, not what they want!

California governor signs transgender-student bill

breakingnews:

AP:

California has become the first state to enshrine certain rights for transgender K-12 students in state law, requiring public schools to allow those students access to whichever restroom and locker room they want.

Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown announced Monday that he had signed AB1266. The new law gives students the right “to participate in sex-segregated programs, activities and facilities” based on their self-perception and regardless of their birth gender.

Ya!!!!! First steps!!

Sketchy Stat: “Women Own 1% of Property”
A Stuff Mom Never Told You listener recently wrote in whether the widely-circulated statistic above that women own less than 1 percent of the world’s property is fact. Cristen investigates:

Regardless of its methodologically murky origin, the 1 percent statistic in particular has had remarkable staying power. For instance, I found it in a 2012 World Bank report, citing UN Women as its source. It also popped up in a United Nations Development Programme global gender equity overview in a sidebar confidently titled “Matters of Fact.” And so forth.


Woman shall inherit the earth!
