Jodie Evans: A Codepink Disrupter

Hosted by

Jodie Evans along with several other women started Codepink in 2002 in an effort to prevent the US invasion of Iraq through confrontations with members of government. Evans also ran California governor Jerry Brown's presidential campaign in 1992. In their conversation, Evans tells Robert Scheer what it was like to run a campaign against Bill Clinton and the similarities she sees with Hilary Clinton's campaign today. She also discusses her ideas about feminism and reconciling them with the possibility of a female president. Finally, Evans tells Scheer how fighting for a living wage as a hotel maid in Las Vegas started her on her path to campaign manager and ultimately Codepink founder.
