Get ready to get unladylike with this field guide to the what's, why's, and how's of intersectional feminism and practical hell-raising. Through essential, inclusive, and illustrated explorations of what patriarchy looks like in the real world, authors and podcast hosts Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin blend wild histories, astounding stats, social justice principles, and self-help advice to connect where the personal meets political in our bodies, brains, booty calls, bank accounts, and other confounding facets of modern woman-ing and nonbinary-ing. By laying out the uneven terrain of double-standards, head games, and handouts patriarchy has manspread across society for ages, Unladylike is here to unpack our gender baggage and map out the space that's ours to claim.
Cristen Conger and Caroline Ervin are the Atlanta-based, journalistically trained, research-addicted hosts of the podcast Unladylike and the cofounders of Unladylike Media, a company dedicated to making inclusive, credible media that moves. As creators and former cohosts of Stuff Mom Never Told You, iTunes' first (or close to it) educational women's podcast, the pair has spent the better part of a decade contextualizing constructs, debunking body myths, sourcing cultural stereotypes, and overusing heteronormative in casual conversation. They're fun.
Admission for all lectures is $10 for general public, $5 for members, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted.
