iHeartRadio’s Women’s History Month Podcasts highlight the world-changing influence of women across social justice, science, politics, the arts and more.
Check out “Stuff Mom Never Told You” to discover the inspiring story behind Mary Edmonia Lewis, the first woman sculptor of Black and Native American heritage to achieve international recognition. Hear from “Stuff You Missed in History Class” on how Madeline Pollard became an unlikely nineteenth-century women’s rights crusader. And listen to a special episode of the “Criminilia” podcast to learn more about Sayyida al-Hurra: the fierce pirate queen who became one of the most important female figures of the Islamic West in the modern age.
For more inspirational podcasts, look no further than this special episode of “Exactly Amara” on women in power and creating your own wealth. Or stream “Chiquis and Chill” heartwrenching episode called “Honoring My Mother, Jenni Rivera,” which sees Chiquis open up like never before to honor her late mother. But that’s not all: there are dozens of other podcasts from the collection—including iHeartRadio originals “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton,” “Red Table Talk: The Estefans” and “Morenita”—for listeners to hear even more powerful and moving stories of women.
Also, in honor of International Women’s Day, hear trailblazing women featured throughout the day on popular iHeartMedia radio shows, as they host important conversations about equality, inclusion and inspiration while sharing steps everyone can take to help more women be heard. These vignettes will culminate in the “iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women Who Make Music and Culture” event: an inspiring on-air special sharing the remarkable stories of influential women like Alicia Keys, Maren Morris and Avril Lavigne—as well as footage and interviews with other top female artists.
