PrimeTime Radio: She’s Not Bitter

How author Gina Barreca stopped worrying about invisible panty lines and conquered the world

Why do people say “cougar” like it’s a bad thing?  And, why is there no king charming? These are a few of the questions columnist Gina Barreca answers in her latest book, It’s Not That I’m Bitter. She uses humor and wit to raise serious questions about the pressures women face regarding age, beauty and relationships.

Barecca teaches English and Feminist Theory at the University of Connecticut, and has a regular starring role as the feminist foil for Pulitzer-Prize winning writer and Humorist Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post. Listen as she shares her incite on gender, politics and power with PrimeTime Radio host Mike Cuthbert.
