    007 - The 'pick me' girl

    007 - The 'pick me' girl

    To kick off Season 2 of the NOUS Podcast, we are discussing 'pick me' girls, both as a culture and as a term. In just a few short years, this phrase has gone from defending the core values of feminism, to enabling the fragmentation, and therefore the potential weakening, of the feminist movement.
    Topics discussed include:
    the term 'pick me' the cause and rise of 'pick me' culture 'pick me' women in authority selfish feminism on a wider scale 'pick me' boys and gaslighting the rejection of femininity weaponising feminism Don’t forget to download, listen, subscribe and review, and be sure to share this podcast with others who would be interested!

Inspiring

Absolutely loving this podcast! With its informative and conscientious take on issues around the world and giving voice to those that would normally be silenced, I couldn’t recommend it more. It’s so nice to see a platform that is giving young women a chance to be themselves and discuss issues important to them that I can only imagine will spark more and more young people to fight, discuss and learn about issues plaguing our generation today. PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS!!!!
