If you missed her on Saturday, catch our Associate Editor Andrea Plaid talking about Scandal on MSNBC with Melissa Harris-Perry as part of an all-star “watch party” that delves into, among other topics, the imperfections of Olivia Pope and why they matter.
“For one hour, we’re allowed to walk into a world where there’s a woman who’s powerful and wonderful and amazing and yet has some very problematic things going on in her life,” Andrea explains.
Also on the panel:
- Heather McGhee, vice-president of policy and outreach for Demos, a public policy group working toward social and economic equality
- Janet Mock, author and founder of the #GirlsLikeUs project on Twitter
- Joy-Ann Reid, managing editor of The Grio and a frequent contributor and guest-host for MSNBC
