After months where our lives got in the way (Again! We know! We’re sorry!) Miró and Kathryn are back with a bushel full of book recommendations. Some we loved: learn about our BAWOTES in The Story of Jane by Laura Kaplan, and listen to us (mostly Kath) ramble on about giving Mansfield Park multiple chances. Some we liked: we finally talk about Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl. And some we didn’t: A Discovery of Witches and Cork Dork. Listen! Read! Recommend your recent favorites to us using the #MttMPod!

As always, we want to hear from YOU! Tell us your thoughts about the episode, a badass woman we should know about, or about anything, really.

In episode 22 Miró and Kath discuss Fashion Week, rant about Yeezy (yes, again), give you some updates on what grandma TV you should be watching, and discuss this topic: “what are we doing with our lives?” (Please don’t answer that).

Bonus points to the person who can figure out the two reasons the outro music was chosen!

This episode our BAWOTE (Badass Woman of the Episode) is Emma Rowena Gatewood (aka Grandma Gatewood) who, at 67, was the first woman to complete a solo hike through the Appalachian Trail. Enough said, go learn more in this episode!

Episode 14: A Very “Special” Episode

Christmas is right around the corner and that means the annual company holiday party is almost here, too. That wonderful time of year where you and your colleagues get drunk and a little too honest together. So who’s responsible for this fiasco? Well, your boss, but if you’re a woman you’ve most likely been asked at one point to help plan a company function. So what do you say? What do you do? We’re not 100% sure but come talk it through with us!

We also celebrate feminist and suffragette Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s birthday (11/12), discuss how to tell people they’re being sexist a-holes without pissing anyone off, and answer listeners’ questions.

 
Whatever gender you identify with, we want to hear from YOU! Tweet to us at #MttMPod and tell us your thoughts about the episode, how feminism and/or sexism affects your life, or about anything, really.

Lyrics from “Sister Suffragette” – Mary Poppins
Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman

We’re clearly soldiers in petticoats
And dauntless crusaders for women’s votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they’re rather stupid
Cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters’ daughters will adore us
And they’ll sing in grateful chorus

Well done, Sister Suffragette

From Kensington to Billingsgate one hears the restless cries
From every corner of the land womankind arise
Political equality
And equal rights with men
Take heart, for Mrs. Pankhurst has been clapped in irons again

No more the meek and mild subservient we
We’re fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear

So cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters’ daughters will adore us
And they’ll sing in grateful chorus
Well done
Well done
Well done, Sister Suffragette
