Reclaiming our Bodies from Patriarchy and Inner Oppression

Nov 11, 2020Power, Privilege + Oppression

I spoke recently with Kris Steinnes on her Voices of Women podcast about patriarchy and the inner oppression we experience as we are socialized into systems of western culture.

Patriarchy is not something that only impacts women. In cultures where patriarchy is the norm (which, at this point in our human evolution includes most of the planet), all ways of being that are associated with femininity are made wrong.

In this podcast interview, Kris and I explore how the patriarchy burdens our bodies and our brains, and consider questions like:

  • What are the invisible tasks that we are assigned as females and how do they change the way we think about ourselves?
  • What do our bodies have to say about living in a world where we do the emotional labor?
  • How have the internal and external oppression living in a patriarchy world impacted us through the centuries?
  • How can we develop a relationship with our world that honors the feminine and loves and needs us deeply?
