Ep090: Culture loves to pit women against women & it's toxic. It's got to stop. Here's why and how

Culture loves a good cat fight. Think Megan vs Kate. Angelina vs Aniston. It loves to make it seem like women are constantly hating on each other. Besides from being bulls**t, it's really damaging to peddle these narratives (but culture, as always, has a reason for doing it which is also toxic). I talk to comms expert Beth Collier about why and we plan our forthcoming Zoom brainstorm to creatively tackle this problem! (Join us - DM me/ suzy@bigjuicycreative.co.uk).  Namely, the nasty narrative distracts from getting female voices heard - and, with all the problems with world is currently facing, we need more feminine qualities coming to the fore to solve them. Like empathy, collaboration, nurturing, listening, creativity..... Of course men can have these too but we're not exactly seeing them in spades from our male leaders right now, are we? Please note, no bras were harmed or burned in the making of this episode. Why on earth would we do that? Bras are bloomin' expensive.
