“Modern Sexism simply denies that sexism exists. This is the most insidious form because it doesn’t argue that men and women should be treated differently, but rather claims men and women are already treated the same.” – Dr. Kristin Neff

In today’s episode, I discuss something that has been on my mind for a while—Modern Sexism. Recently I’ve either experienced it or seen other women become entangled in it. However, I didn’t have the vocabulary to express what was happening. 

It wasn’t until I recently read, “Fierce Self Compassion” by Dr. Kristin Neff that I had the full understanding of what was happening: Modern Sexism. 

(Because we didn’t have enough going on already with just the regular form of sexism) 

This is not an eloquent episode—I tell stories of children’s books and swear frequently. But it’s a story that is authentic and very close to my heart. It is also an important story. And I thank you for letting me share it with you.
