This is a conversation for women who find themselves alienated, frustrated, or confused by a culture that tells us our womanhood is fungible. Whether it’s the corporate world encouraging you to freeze your eggs or the people around you encouraging you to behave like a man in even more sensitive areas of life, this podcast seeks to understand better ways of being women. Listen as host Helen Roy explores the reality and possibilities of modern womanhood in this age of dysphoria, detraction, and distraction.
