EPISODE 025 – STEPFORD HELLSCAPE

LISTEN ON ITUNES | SOUNDCLOUD | YOUTUBE

Imagine a world where women are murdered so they can be replaced with subservient automatons—and by men who claim to love them. Long before the 1970s cult classic ‘The Stepford Wives’ became shorthand for hausfraus who only care about cleaning products, this film brought to light women’s fears of oppression, and how those fears follow us to the grave. Today we continue our ‘Women as Robots’ series with a sobering look at the trope and the original film, along with a lot of criticism for the bad 2000’s retelling.
