On the latest Libertarianism.org podcast, I talk with the Cato Institute's Aaron Ross Powell and Trevor Burrus about the storied lack of libertarian women, whether this gender balance is shifting, and ways that so-called women's issues can be approached from a libertarian perspective. We also discuss whether there's something inherent in feminism that makes it pro-government, what a libertarian feminism looks like, how to promote societal norms without injecting state violence into them, and issues such as abortion, sex work, and censorship.
