Video: MHP on Women, Church, and State

21 Feb

Melissa Harris-Perry’s new show on MSNBC premiered this weekend, and Sunday’s show had a particularly excellent conversation on the fallout from the Obama administration’s decision on contraceptive coverage and religious employers.

Included: Sen. Barbara Boxer’s grandson’s concise observation about the all-male panel on contraception, multiple anecdotes about shifting male-centric framing in girls’ lives, and several plain truths about male supremacy that you will basically never find on cable news shows or television generally.

    “Schema” AKA Framing! How great is it to have another woman’s voice saying these things AND on national television! It’s almost surreal to hear that conversation since it’s so extremely rare.

    I know… I was both flabbergasted and mouth agape! I do say! 🙂 I’m quite excited about her show.
