Do you worry about sounding dumb so you avoid asking questions or speaking up in meetings? Do you write down what you want to say, or go over and over it in your head? This week Reshma explores how that starts when we're young girls and keeps us from taking up space when we grow up. Plus, she gives you a bravery challenge so you can start to speak up for yourself in those moments that's really matter. You can tell Reshma your Brave, Not Perfect story or ask her a question by calling 347-76-BRAVE. Plus, you can follow her on twitter and instagram @ReshmaSaujani.
Guests: Dr. Joy Bradford, host of the Therapy for Black Girls Podcast, talks to Reshma about unique obstacles women of color face when it comes to bravery and perfection. Yamani Hernandez, Executive Director of the National Network of Abortion Funds, get personal and discusses standing up for yourself in those moments that really matter and how the medical establishment is gaslighting women.
