In this introduction episode, I talk about:
Part 1: the story | 2:20 - 19:35
what is “the story of woman” and why it’s important
what the story of humankind looks like when half of it is missing
the social construct of gender, aka the performance of a lifetime
woman’s “special” category, eg scientists... and women scientists
personal and societal benefits of adding woman’s story into the main narrative
what’s in it for men
intersecting layers of oppression... there is no single story of woman
Part 2: the podcast | 19:35 - end
the purpose of this podcast
recurring sections in each episode
men are losers too (in gender inequality of course)
feminism gets a bad rap... because the narrative has been a bit one-sided...
