Caitlin Moran on Feminism, the Patriarchy, and All Things Womanhood | Happy Place Podcast

Fearne Cotton's Happy Place

11 ह वेळा पाहिला36

    Can men be feminists? Is there a misuse of the term feminism that makes young men hate the movement? Has feminism gone too far? Over the last ten years, Caitlin Moran has learnt that we have to allow feminism to evolve as both society and our own priorities change. Feminism simply means gender equality, and the fight is on the release both women and men from the gnawing clutches of the patriarchy.

    In this chat with Fearne, Caitlin Moran explains the importance of social media in amplifying women's voices as well as how to approach men to join the feminist movement so that they do not see women as a threat. Between laughs, jokes and a few moments of reflection, Caitlin Moran explains how some time ago she asked men on Twitter what kind of issues they've been dealing with lately. And the stories that were shared ranged from hilarious to heartwarming.

        Just wow, what an episode, so many things stood out. As a woman of 41 I can totally relate to pretty much everything discussed, shaming our bodies parts really stood out to me, I have done this ever since I was little and I hate that I still do this now which is really sad. Also Pottering 🙌🏻 it’s a real thing and my husband moans at me for doing this but I love it.

      No, not at all there is no misuse, my dear, it's just no one likes cancer much, that's all. You know feminism is cancer, right?

        @ammarko1000 no ur just being sexist, feminism isnt about females being equal to other genders, its about all genders being equal and not discriminated against, and you are comparing that to a disease which is either sexist or completely makes no sense, “my dear”
