Girls Gotta Read Ep. 6: Glass Ceilings & Gutters

On this episode of the Girls Gotta Read Podcast, the girls kick off Women’s History Month by delving into the fascinating life of the third liberty mother: the droll, unapologetic, and incredibly prolific writer Isabel Paterson. A mentor to Ayn Rand and correspondent of Rose Wilder Lane, Paterson was the eldest, and according to some scholars, had the biggest impact on the libertarian movement out of the three.

As we reflect on the influence and life of Paterson and wrap up our episodes on the libertarian mother trio, we have to ask: Do you think there is a glass ceiling for women in America today? Do you think there ever was? Or is the glass ceiling in the United States nothing but a fallacy?

Also, if Melanie were to open up a dive bar called Mel’s Gutter, would you go? Listen to the episode to find out more!

To read along with the girls and prepare for the next episode, you can find Paterson’s celebrated essay “The Humanitarian with the Guillotine.”

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments [Video]

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.
