    Walking While Female: The Constant Battle Against Street Harassment

    Walking While Female: The Constant Battle Against Street Harassment

    In this episode, we explore the insidious ways in which patriarchy is entrenched in our society, particularly when it comes to women navigating the streets. Our host shares a personal experience of being yelled at by two men while walking her dog and how it reminded her of the constant labor and energy women are forced to give to men subtly and blatantly every day. From being harassed on the street to navigating men's emotional minefields, women are expected to abide by unspoken rules or face the consequences. Join us as we break down these small interactions and explore how they constantly drain women's energy and time.

    Ep. 85 Defining My Own Womanhood: Accountability, Joy, Spirituality, and Unconventionality

    Ep. 85 Defining My Own Womanhood: Accountability, Joy, Spirituality, and Unconventionality

    This episode explores what womanhood means to many of us and how we can redefine it for ourselves. For many of us, womanhood has been defined by our mothers and grandmothers' experiences, and we have been conditioned to believe that men are the only way to find true fulfillment in life.
    However, we challenge this notion and redefine womanhood to mean accountability, joy, spirituality, and unconventionality. We believe that by shifting our focus away from men and our parents, we can discover what truly brings us joy and fulfillment.
    We dive into what it means to be accountable for our womanhood, why taking responsibility for our actions is essential, and how victimhood can hold us back. We also explore how womanhood can be enjoyable, even when society seems to emphasize suffering.
    We encourage you to reject traditional paths of womanhood and focus on what brings you joy and fulfillment. Join us in defining womanhood and taking full responsibility for your past, present, and future.
