In the US, daytime talk shows hosted by women, mostly with women guests, and mostly women’s audiences are very prevalent. Examples include the long-running Oprah, The View, The Wendy Williams Show, etc.
One perspective of them is as a bunch of filler blab, with the host or guest occasionally launching a punch line to get the studio audience all riled up. And of course the punch line invariable deals with some injustice that a particular woman, or women in general have endured. Sometimes they bring a whipping boy out for everybody to hate upon.
A perhaps more respectful perspective is that these are shows where issues relevant to women are discussed. I suppose that this is true. But there is more. There are agendas at work, ones that not necessarily beneficial to women either individually, or as a whole. The Feminists who populate these programs have their standard over-reaching goals; we know all about that. The show’s creators and the broadcasting television stations also want to make money. Everybody’s goals can be attained by riling up the audience with victimhood. Doing this normally involves finding the most sympathetic “victims” that one can in order to sell the case. Normally relevant facts are not mentioned. Typically the studio audience has been coached beforehand to whoop it up on the punchlines. And the big kicker — emotional rather than logical appeals are made.
All of this leads to regular watchers becoming jaded and having an unrealistic world view. This does not lead to productive and content women. One might view these shows as a cancer upon the land; with the dumb ideas spreading and metastasizing. Furthermore, the husbands and children bear the brunt of the impact these dirty deeds. It is as if feminists hated families.
