The implications of congressional Democrats' proposed Equality Act are “tremendously disappointing,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., says.  The House of Representatives already has passed the legislation, which faces what many Congress-watchers believe will be a closely fought battle in the Senate. The Equality Act would make “gender identity” and “sexual orientation” protected classes under federal civil rights law. This means, for example, that the law would require institutions and individuals to treat transgender women not as biological men who identify as women, but as biological females, giving them access to women’s sports and women’s-only spaces. Blackburn joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to discuss the implications of the legislation becoming the law of the land. She also talks about other issues and shares a bit of her own journey to conservatism.  Also on today’s show, Kelsey Bolar, a senior policy analyst at Independent Women's Forum and a contributor to The Daily Signal, talks with track athlete Alanna Smith and Alliance Defending Freedom lawyer Christiana Holcomb about their Connecticut court battle to protect women’s sports from the participation of biological males.
