A weekly girl’s night out with some of the most fascinating and fabulous women on the planet. We dish on everything from #metoo and sex to, well, doing the dishes. No topic is off-limits – unless it’s boring. Warning: There will be cocktails.

Christina Hoff Sommers

Bubbly, sparkling, and inclined to speak French when tipsy, Christina is the human embodiment of her favorite cocktail, a Kir Royale. Christina counters tired doctrines and rigid political correctness with wit and charm – along with an arsenal of facts. Yes, she’s that friend who studied and did her homework before the party.

Author of 5 books, including Who Stole Feminism? and The War Against Boys—the latter a New York Times“Notable Book of the Year.” Other books include Freedom Feminism, One Nation Under Therapy (with Dr. Sally Satel), and The Science on Women in Science.

Resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, where Christina studies the politics of gender and feminism, as well as free expression, due process, and the preservation of liberty in the academy.

Contributor to  publications such as The Journal of Philosophy, The New England Journal of Medicine, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Republic, Slate, The Daily Beast, and The Atlantic.

Host of the popular video blog, The Factual Feminist, which has garnered more than four million views.

Danielle Crittenden

When the party’s starting, Danielle’s the one throwing it. A master convenor of ideas, personalities, and lively conversation, Danielle is that party hostess who puts every guest at ease … and gets the dancing going. Her favorite cocktail is the classic side car: a smooth combination of tangy and sweet which packs an unexpected punch.

Author of four books, including What Our Mothers Didn’t Tell Us: Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman, which resulted in Vanity Fair describing her as “one of the most important new thinkers about women and family.”

Other works include a novel, AmandaBright@Home,the first modern work of fiction to be serialized in the Wall Street Journal. She’s also the co-author of a cookbook, From a Polish Country House Kitchen, co-written with Pulitzer-prize winning historian Anne Applebaum.

A contributing editor to the Huffington Post, Danielle’s articles and essays have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Daily Telegraph. A former columnist for the New York Post, she has appeared on NBC’s Today show as well as CSPAN, MSNBC, PBS, CNN, and NPR.
