This is a slightly unusual episode, inspired by an email I got from Plan International Canada about International Day of the Girl which is, in fact, today! October 11! They shared with me some data they’ve gathered about how girls picture themselves (or don’t picture themselves) in leadership positions, and guess what, I’ve got some thoughts about it. You know what else I’ve got? SOME LINKS:
- The Vancouver Podcast Festival runs from November 7-10; the Secret Feminist Agenda meet-up will be part of the Podfair on November 8.
- My conversation with Lindy West is scheduled for December 3! Don’t forget to pre-order her new book, The Witches Are Coming.
- On the topic of imposter syndrome and “confidence,” read “Impostor syndrome is a response to a world that doesn’t believe in women“
- And check out Clare’s blog post, “A Killjoy Survival Kit for the Secret Feminist Agenda” and don’t forget to send in your own survival kits!
