Ep #25: Ever Feel Like a Bad Feminist?


Today, I want to talk to you about a phrase that I often hear from my clients, friends, and colleagues – “Bad feminist.”

I feel like a bad feminist, but…” and this phrase is always followed by a confession of why the speaker’s feelings, actions, and beliefs don’t match up.

There are lots of reasons, most of which are external circumstances, women give for not always feeling empowered to act on their beliefs. However, none of these reasons is the real reason why this conflict occurs.

On this episode, we explore the process that causes the disconnect between our beliefs and actions, and exactly why you feel bad about it. Listen in as I share a step-by-step process to help you stop feeling like a “bad feminist” and actually practice what you believe in without anything holding you back.
