    Feminism, Equality and Navigating Patriarchal Culture with Dr Sarah Rutherford (aka Caggie’s mum!)

    Feminism, Equality and Navigating Patriarchal Culture with Dr Sarah Rutherford (aka Caggie’s mum!)

    Dr. Sarah Rutherford is a consultant, writer, and speaker with an academic background in organisational culture. She is the author of the book Women’s Work Men’s Cultures: Overcoming Resistance and Changing Organizational Cultures (Palgrave Macmillan).
    She also happens to be Caggie’s mum!
    In this conversation, Sarah explains a brief history of feminism and how progress in equality isn’t always linear; we only have to look at what is happening in the world today to see how quickly women’s rights can be taken away and why they have to continue to be fought for. She shares her insights on culture in the workplace, how women’s experiences often differ vastly to men’s, and the reasons why.
    They also discuss the stigma around women helping women, which Caggie refers to as the “female wound” and this feeling we often have that there isn’t room for all of us to succeed. 
    This is also an interesting insight into Caggie’s personal life, as it’s her first time having a family member on the show!

Melissa Hemsley

I love the rich and diverse conversations offered on this podcast and particularly enjoyed this one with Melissa. Just so real and open. What so many women out there need to hear. Giving us all permission to dare to live ‘unmasked’. Wonderful. Thank you Caggie xxx

Refreshingly lighthearted yet so insightful

It’s so nice listening to Caggie and her guest speakers chat about deeper, more meaningful topics with honesty and open mindedness.

Incredible episode
Absolutely stuck in a chronic rock bottom from crippling shame/ eating disorder and body dysmorphia which has destroyed every area of my life. I thought this would be a light episode and at most, would learn something about manifesting.
I ended up crying with Roxie, making so many connections and having light bulb moments in my own life and felt like I had finally heard from someone else struggling with this monster. The level of warmth and understanding Caggie eminates and her own wisdom carries and supports her guests, which creates such an incredible synergy and feeling of safety. There are good women/ people out there who truly want to hold and listen to each other.
