It's May and we're talking friendships! Specifically experiences with female friendships and the age old question can girls be friends with guys? The answer is of course yes, but we chat about why this is even a question to be raised! Interspersed with this are our usual features such as What's in the News and Daily Mail Fail. Our Tampon Tampoff topic this week is the summer season itself, so tune in to find out why Lowri is ranting about summer! We also get chatting about implicit bias and the effect on sexism in our society - we all took the 'gender - career' test with varying results! The link to test yourself is here: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/selectatest.html. Remember you can change your implicit bias, but only if you are aware of them! If you're still feeling political after the flash general election then do also check out our election special on your podcast app.
The flash election is fast approaching with only a few weeks to go! The Rational Feminists got together over Easter when the election was first announced and, with two special guests Rhiannon Smith and Eluned Smith, we look at what this election might mean for feminism, and of course women in politics. We discuss why we should be bothered that only 29% of our reperesentatives in parliament are women and we have our usual feature Tampon or Tampoff where we rate the rants of our guests - Rhiannon on gendered clothing, and Eluned on the american primaries.
It's April, it's Easter, and we're talking feminism and religion! We are joined by special guest Meg Chambers to help us puzzle out this topic. Expect the standard features, including a church based 'TampON or TampOFF' as well as the 'Women's Issues' section where we talk all things about the Women's Equality Party.
It's March and we're talking babies! Special guest Dr Eluned Smith joins us for some excellent chat this month and the usual features such as 'Tampon Tampoff' and 'You Should Be Bothered'. Later release than usual due to technical issues! Women and technology........you know what they say.
There's a Podcast for That Productions presents
