The narrative that a child only needs love and safety to thrive is being challenged by Katy Faust, founder of Them Before Us, a nonprofit organization that promotes social policies to protect the rights of children.

In her new book, “Them Before Us: Why We Need a Global Children’s Rights Movement,” Faust argues that a child needs a stable home with love from both a mother and a father.

Faust joins the “Problematic Women” podcast to share her story and why it’s critical that the needs of the child play a key role in debates about same-sex parenting, divorce, sperm- or egg-donor children, and so on.

Also on today’s show, we discuss Disney’s Lucasfilm decision to cancel actress Gina Carano, and Carano’s recent appearance on “The Ben Shapiro Show” to tell her side of the story.

Plus, we share Heritage Foundation President Kay C. James’ recent conversation with the Network of Enlightened Women. James discusses how we can balance life’s many demands and what it means to be a strong, conservative woman.

And as always, we’ll be crowning our “Problematic Woman of the Week.”

Enjoy the show!
