RELEASED 02/02/2017

This week on “Lady Problems,” the MTV News podcast dedicated to pop culture’s treatment of women, Hazel Cills and Rachel Handler c-host alongside Vulture's TV columnist Jen Chaney.
We talk to Jen about her new piece, "The Romantic Comedy is Not Dead — It's Just Not The Same As You Remember," break down our favorite and most abhorred rom-coms, and wonder what the rom-com will look like now that we are living in a hellish dystopia. Later, we get into how, during awards season in said dystopia, famous women are using the mic to voice dissent,  — and, this week, have awkward but important conversations about intersectional feminism at Sundance. Lastly, we'll talk about how and why female pop-culture icons like Carrie Fisher and Cher Horowitz have become central to the resistance.
