Of Pantsuits & Burtkas: The Unlikely Feminist Origins of the Women’s March

On episode two of the Bros4America podcast, co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Alex Mohajer investigates feminist movements and uprisings in history. Among them is the little-known story of the Women’s Uprising of 1979, and when you learn where this movement took place, you will be shocked. Mohajer goes on to [KiwiClickToTweet tweet=”You will NEVER believe where the feminist origins of the Women’s March are!” quote=”‘How the Donald Trump’s Rise Parallels the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran.’ “], before offering his stark warning, the lessons of the past that must be observed in the present, and the dire consequences that will result if we do not put up a coordinated resistance to the Trump  Administration.
