Women’s Issues – Real Women, Real Talk is an hour-long program that covers issues from a women’s perspective. Real Women, Real Talk features in-depth conversations on various topics including relationships, finances and much more. Real Women, Real Talk is produced by Virginia State University.

Virginia State University’s own Paulette Walker Johnson and her ‘real women’ co-hosts talk about real issues that affect women, and men too…from relationships, work/life balance, and friendships, to safety, finances, and more. It’s like being in the beauty shop on a busy Saturday morning…you can learn a lot, agree or disagree, and get some real good seasoned advice for free!
