Till Death Do Us Pod - S5 Episode 02 - VOTE! Chatting to Mandu Reid. Leader of Women's Equality Party

In this week's episode we chatted to Mandu Reid leader of the @womensequalityparty. We talked about how the party is tackling all the important issues (violence against women, pay gap, childcare etc) and not just on International Women's Day, but all year round. Why other political parties don't have 'women's rights' at the top of their agenda, and why WEP’s work is so important and needed. We were so inspired by her words about feminism, why it's not a hostile word, why the party is also for men and why they should get behind their agenda, and how she deals with resistance from women themselves. This is something I've struggled a lot with myself, especially recently with my video about Sarah Everard and my latest video on sexism, and it was so interesting to hear her talk about how internalized misogyny and living in a patriarchal society as women, but also how compassion helps her navigate through all of that. Finally, we talked about a new type of politics, different from the known stereotype, more genuine and why it's time for a change. In short, it was one of the most interesting interviews we've had and I hope you take the time to listen! For those of you who are in London, as you know the elections are coming up, I urge you to consider giving your vote (in the orange ballot) to WEP if gender equality matters to you. @itsmikeleigh joined the party straight after the show and is now a proud member which gave me so much joy and hopefully serves as an example to other men that women's rights are human rights and should be in everyone's interest, not just women. #podcast #WEP #women
