Broadway's Laura Bell Bundy on Her Star-Studded Women's Rights Benefit

November 10, 2017
Tony-nominated actress Laura Bell Bundy joins us to preview "Double Standards," a star-studded benefit concert for women's rights. Bundy is the producer, director, and host of the event. She says she was inspired to put it together after getting frustrated by the double standards surrounding Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential candidacy. Bundy tells us all about the evenings A-list slate of performers, including Rosie O'Donnell, Jessie Mueller, Sara Bareilles, and Ingrid Michaelson. All proceeds from the event go to National Breast Cancer Coalition, Planned Parenthood of New York City, and the ACLU. Then, we put the benefit in the context of Tuesday's historic elections across the country. Bundy says the breaking of political boundaries brought her "joy," saying it's exciting to see America's diverse genders, sexual orientations, and races be represented electorally.
