S5 EP5 CAN YOU BE A FEMINIST AND ALSO BE JEALOUS OF OTHER WOMEN? FT EMMIE HARRISON-WEST


Laura and I are very proud feminists, but from time to time experience feelings of jealousy or envy when other women are doing things that we wish we were doing. It's something that a lot of women tend to feel guilty about as it 'goes against' the principle of being a true feminist. This is where the lovely Emmie comes in! A few months ago Emmie wrote a piece for The Metro which has helped us hugely with facing up to the fact that feminism and jealousy can go hand in hand - and it doesn't make you a bad person!

We discuss:
  • What feminism means to us
  • How Emmie realised she was experiencing too much jealousy over her 'idols' 
  • How freeing it can be when you step back from your jealous feelings and analyse why you're feeling them
  • How social media plays a big part in creating jealousy
  • Why communication is so vital amongst women
