Hello, and welcome to Episode 5 of The Week in Women. If you want The Week in Women early — every Friday morning — upgrade to a paid subscription.

On this week’s episode, headlines include a huge abortion rights victory in Kansas, upcoming abortion votes in a smattering of other states, and how women’s rights in the US are being literally rolled back to a time before we could vote.

I’m also in conversation with my friend Satya Doyle Byock about her new book Quarterlife: The Search for Self in Early Adulthood. Satya and I talk about the particular challenges facing young women in an era of declining reproductive rights, and what it means to balance stability and meaning on a burning planet. Satya is an incredible person and her book is so, so informative and so, so crucial — do pick up a copy.

If you’re enjoying The Week in Women, feel free to share it with a friend. And if you listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or anywhere else, I would be very grateful if you would rate, review and subscribe.
