EP 11: Overwhelmed by it All, The First Time I was Called a Feminist, P.S. #metoo

EP 11 Cover Art.jpg

When there is a lot going on in the world and you have a big heart, it can all get really overwhelming. Where and what do you contribute? How do you share when it is hard to see where to even start? Sarah starts the conversation there in this episode and then shares her journey of owning herself as a feminist (when at first she rejected the title). The final piece of the episode is around #metoo, how personal it is, and how we can have conversations that change the culture.
