Welcome to “Who Run The World: A Women’s Podcast.” This podcast series explores different aspects of womanhood in intersectional ways.
This episode is about women and belonging — my guest is Cat Connelly. We discuss racism and ignorance in our communities, and what spaces we are accepted in based on our identities. We also talk about how we gain a sense of belonging and why women need more self-love.
