In honor of International Women’s Day this week, we bring you a timely discussion about the evolving definition of femininity. In Episode 154 of the Edit Your Life podcast, Asha talks with author Catherine Connors about her new book (with co-author Amy Stanton), The Feminine Revolution. Asha and Catherine discuss the importance of valuing intuition as more than a feeling, but as a way of knowing. They also talk about how parenting has expanded their perspectives on gender roles, and how broadening and celebrating qualities traditionally seen as feminine not only empowers girls, but kids of all genders.
