New York Times bestselling author Lori Lansens is here! In this ep, we discuss Lori’s new book (This Little Light, out now) in relation to some anti-feminist atrocities such as Purity Balls (GROSS), sexist dress codes, and the pressure to achieve Happiness as a finite state. We also chat about why the Kardashian empire can be considered a feminist feat, how shows like the Bachelor are really just “emotional sport,” and what happened when Lori got a call saying her daughter’s bralessness was a “distraction” at school. Um, sir, our breasts our business!
