Podcast: ‘The Bachelorette,’ ‘Sex And The City,’ And Miss America In The #MeToo Era

Bre Payton and Emily Yahr discuss current drama on ‘The Bachelorette,’ looking back on ‘Sex and The City,’ and both shows in the light of new feminism.



Emily Yahr, pop culture writer at The Washington Post, joins Staff Writer Bre Payton on this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour. They give an update on this season’s “Bachelorette”, the 20th anniversary of “Sex and The City,” and how today’s feminism and #MeToo movements are reckoning with these sex-centered shows.

“It’s a show where you’re having someone date 25 people, but at the same time they’re very cautious even mentioning that people do have sex on the show,” Yahr said. “And certain contestants, mostly women, then get shamed if they say it out loud… it’s this confusing double standard.”

Later in the hour, they discuss the announced changes to the Miss America competition.
