Hawaii's Feminist Recovery Plan

A group of women in Hawaii are showing the nation that post-pandemic economic recovery can be visionary, just, and transformative. They have crafted a plan that centers women, insists on gender equality, and advances deep cultural change. In this episode of Radical Imagination, host Angela Glover Blackwell speaks with Khara Jabola-Carolus, the executive director of Hawaii’s Commission on the Status of Women, which released the plan, titled “Building Bridges, Not Walking on Backs: A Feminist Recovery Plan for Covid-19.”  And we hear from activist and midwife Tanya Smith-Johnson, who co-authored the plan and works to improve maternal and neonatal care in Hawaii’s rural areas.
