Mary Tape — Sued to Fight Segregation of Chinese-Americans in CA Schools [Sam Eggers]

This week, Sam brings us the story of Mary Tape!

Mary immigrated to the US from China as a child. She was raised Christian and eventually settled down to start a family in San Francisco. When her daughter was forbidden to attend the local public school, she sued the school district in one of the first challenges to America's "Separate but Equal" policy in the late 1800s!

Bridget “Biddy” Mason — LA Real Estate Entrepreneur Who Sued For Her Freedom From Slavery [Sara Gorsky]

Bridget “Biddy” Mason — LA Real Estate Entrepreneur Who Sued For Her Freedom From Slavery [Sara Gorsky]

October 28, 2020

This week, Sara brings us the story of Bridget "Biddy" Mason!

Born into slavery, Biddy traveled with her master across the United States to settle in the new Mormon Utopia of Utah before heading even farther west to California. When he sought to return with Biddy to Texas, where her children would have been—as far as Texas law was concerned—immediately enslaved, she enlisted the help of a few free Black people, and successfully sued her owner for her freedom.

After that, without ever learning to read or write, Biddy became a real estate entrepreneur and businesswoman who helped build the city of Los Angeles from the ground up.

Broadly Speaking #4: A Toast to Ruth Bader Ginsburg — The Notorious RBG

Broadly Speaking #4: A Toast to Ruth Bader Ginsburg — The Notorious RBG

October 14, 2020

This week, we decided to give a toast to a Broad who dedicated her entire life to the pursuit of gender equality. The news lately has felt very doom and gloom in regards to her passing, so we wanted to highlight a few of her achievements and attempt to recenter the narrative around what she pushed for: empowering one another to continue the fight for justice and equality.

A full episode on RBG is sure to come in the future, but for now, we wanted to mourn her passing in our own way. We'll return with another Broad next week.

Grace O’Malley — Irish Pirate Queen & Scourge of the English Empire [Chloe Skye]

Grace O’Malley — Irish Pirate Queen & Scourge of the English Empire [Chloe Skye]

September 16, 2020

This week, Chloe researched the 16th Century Irish pirate queen, Grace O'Malley!

 

Grace was infamous in Ireland and England alike. Her enemies feared her. Her followers respected her. And for over 40 years, she raided and pillaged English settlements in protest of the creeping Imperialism in her home country. A day after the birth of her son, she got out of bed to quell an attempt by corsairs to take over her ship.

Check out the full episode to hear these stories and more, including a final confrontation with Queen Elizabeth that literally went down in the history books.

Broadly Speaking #3: “Disney’s Mulan” Reactions & Review

Broadly Speaking #3: “Disney’s Mulan” Reactions & Review

September 9, 2020

A Broad is a woman who lives by her own rules. Broads You Should Know is the podcast about the Broads who helped shape our world! "Broadly Speaking" is a BONUS episode of Broads You Should Know where the hosts (Sam, Sara, & Chloe) answer fan mail, talk about their lives, and discuss Broad-related content they've been consuming lately.

 

This week, we're reviewing Disney's Mulan, released last week on Disney+ for $30 (+ subscription costs). Since we did an episode about the REAL Mulan back in March to coincide with the film's original release date (back in those pre-COVID days), we figured we should watch the movie and give our thoughts, including how good a job they did at adhering to the truth vs the original cartoon.

Lucy Parsons — Anarchist Leader of the Labor Party and Advocate for Workers’ Rights [Sara Gorsky]

Lucy Parsons — Anarchist Leader of the Labor Party and Advocate for Workers’ Rights [Sara Gorsky]

September 2, 2020

This week, Sara researched Lucy Parsons, and enlightens all us Broads as to the history of the Labor Party & Anarchist Movement in the early 20th Century United States!

 

Lucy Parsons fought her entire life for workers' rights. She was possibly born a slave, but claims not to be Black at all. Still, she is considered by many to be one of the most important figures in the Labor Movement throughout 20th Century America. She was considered by the FBI and various government agencies to be "more dangerous than 100 rioters" due to her skill as an orator to unite people behind a common goal.

She and her husband Albert Parsons were both a part of the Haymarket Riot, for which Albert was hanged, despite later evidence revealing him to be innocent.

Check out the full episode to learn more about what Lucy Parsons accomplished during her life, and why she is a Broad You Should Know!
