With the Justice League movie coming out this Friday, 17 November, Beth, Liz and Bea discuss the topic of female superheroes (a.k.a. every woman in existence ever). We look at Wonder Woman, Supergirl and the new Doctor Who. Get ready for a lot of girl power and ass-kicking.
Today on SWP, join Beatrice, Heather, and Elizabeth as they discuss witchcraft and magic from a non-Eurocentric stance. From Appalachia to Australia, Africa to Japan, we cover everything from the brutality of modern-day witch hunts to Okabe the cat witch and everything in between. We have plenty of resources for you to peruse as well if you want to check out our citations. Enjoy the next installment of our witch series, and, as always, stay nasty! 😉
Grab some Halloween candy and listen to Liz talk with our special guest PerSister Allene Nichols about pop-culture depictions of witches and witchcraft. The conversation spans from good vs. evil witches and how that is connected to gender, Charmed, Hermione and the significance of cauldrons. This time, we won’t be talking about persecution, burning and castration, so enjoy it while you can and get ready to binge-watch some witchy shows on Netflix.
Grab your Halloween chocolate and listen to Heather explain all the things about the fun parts of being a woman in the early modern era (like not being allowed to do or say anything ever because anything can be suspect and you’re gonna get killed). Featuring merry tales of persecution, killing, burning and castration anxiety. (Yay)
Also: fitting the theme of castration anxiety and misogyny, you’ll learn a binding spell against trump, which should be part of anyone’s magical survival kit, so listen to this.
Grab your chocolates, nasties, cause Beth and Bea discuss the ‘A’ in LGBTQIA and how it doesn’t represent allies, but rather the ever-mystifying ‘asexuality’. Full of witty one-liners and phrases you’ll want a button of, Beth and Bea unpack all the shades of grey within asexuality, as well as look at some of the other closely-related ways that people may identify – all while inventing their own perfume line (you’re going to want it, trust us!).
Stay tuned for our next exciting new series soon!
We are kicking off pride month like we kick off everything: talking about things that are depressing as fuck. This time bi-negativity and misogyny and the intersection of both. Do we need to remind you that you need chocolate to get through this episode? No, we don’t.
Women’s bodies are routinely scrutinized, policed, touched without their consent and decided upon without their having a say in it. Don’t worry, it gets worse: being pregnant does not really change that; in fact, strangers might feel motivated to touch your belly or force you to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term. All we have is chocolate, ladies.
In this Mother’s Day episode, Heather explains pregnancy while Beth, Beatrice, and Liz realise that they need inhalers to get through the episode. Grab your chocolate and your Feminist rage and learn about as much as we could stomach about the pregnant female body. We’re sorry for everything we put our mothers through, and we thank them for going through the torture that led to our birth.
Dear nasties, this week, joined by Elizabeth, the four women of She Who Persisted tackle sexism and struggles in academia. So get your chocolate ready, get pizza, and a therapist and listen to this episode. Being a woman in academia sucks but at least you’re not alone. Let’s commiserate.
Welcome to the She Who Persisted Podcast! For our first episode, we decided to take a look at the history of Easter and our personal relationships with the holiday. We hope you enjoy.
