The doc got us thinking about celebrity and tabloid culture, and the way women are treated in the public eye. Here’s what to do next if you’re in the same boat:
Listen to “You’re Wrong About.” On the pod, two journalists re-examine big news stories that the media and public, well, got kind of wrong. Hint: it makes you rethink what you know about women who’ve made headlines over the years. We rec the Janet Jackson Super Bowl ep, and the one about Anna Nicole Smith.
Read “90s Bitch” by Allison Yarrow. About how women like Monica Lewinsky, Tonya Harding, and Anita Hill, were shamed and scrutinized. If it sounds a lot like a precursor for all the misogyny that went down with Brit, you’re not wrong.
Watch “Didn't We Almost Have It All.” It’s the new Whitney Houston documentary that looks at the parallel pressure and criticism Houston and her daughter both faced during their time in the spotlight.
