I wanna see you be brave

This week, we investigate why girls are taught that it’s cute to be scared and how that impacts us as adults. We also share our read/watch/listen/follow recommendations for this month.

What you’ll hear:

  • Why we teach young women it's 'cute' to be scared
  • Ways we've seen ourselves both give in to and stand up to expected cultural norms for women
  • How perfectionism affects courage
  • Tips for being brave
  • What we're reading, watching, listening to, and following

Can I quote you on that?

  • “Timidity has become a function of femininity” Maggie
  • “I was aware of getting extra points for being a girl who was willing to take a risk.” Jacey
  • “You are a lioness.” Maggie
  • “I’m still working through that summer reading list. I know it’s October.” Jacey
