In this week's pod Kelly talks with POWERHOUSE author and creator Trista Hendren about her latest book, “How to Live Well Despite Capitalist Patriarchy”! It’s a great convo between two women who are figuring out how to resist and change the status quo while honouring their woman-selves in a world that tells them what and who they should be. We bet you'll learn something about how to heal, understand and care for yourself better!
Excerpt from the book:
“Capitalist Patriarchy sucks for women.
We are taught to blame ourselves incessantly for everything that is wrong in our lives—without looking at the bigger picture of structural inequality at play. My hope is that as more women begin to wake up and share with each other, we will heal ourselves and weave our way out of this hellish maze together.
Capitalist Patriarchy thrives when women shut up and do as they are told. While it would appear (for some of us at least) that if we play by the rules, we will be safe—those of us who begin to rock the boat with our questioning and refusal to STFU know how easy it is to be thrown off the boat altogether—children and all.
This book will serve as a starting point to challenge some of our societal assumptions, in hopes of helping women become stronger and breaking their chains. As we begin to heal collectively, we can overturn this system altogether.”
