    • Society & Culture

Have you ever wondered how a woman can raise her voice for advocacy, while being soft-spoken? Today we sit down with feminist icon, Letty Cottin Pogrebin. From being a founding editor of the revolutionary Ms. Magazine, a renowned author, to a fervent social activist, this is an intimate interview. Her recount of her public speaking experiences, in the face of complex and controversial topics, is a masterclass in itself!
Are you curious about what it was like to be Betty Friedan's writer for the National Women's Political Caucus in Washington? Letty's retelling is filled with adventures, book tours, and interactions with legendary authors. Her unique perspective on the evolution of feminist literature is both insightful and captivating.
Letty also takes us on a tour of her personal life, highlighting her feminism, self-love, and how she nurtured a healthy, enduring marriage. She spills the beans on how she and her feminist colleagues debunked myths and educated women about the importance of body positivity. She also sheds light on navigating a loving and equal relationship amidst life's challenges. Whether you've been an admirer of Letty or are just getting to know her now, this episode promises to illuminate, engage, and inspire. Buckle up for an enlightening conversation with a woman who truly shaped the feminist movement.
