Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. In 2012, an article in The Atlantic was being widely shared among my friends. It was called Why Women Still Can’t Have It All, and it was by a Princeton professor named Anne-Marie Slaughter, and I remember reading it several times and hearing from other full-time moms how validated …
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. All of us have heard or used the term “mansplaining” - that thing that happens when a man explains something to you that he assumes you don’t know, when you do know what you’re talking about because of your professional expertise or your own lived experience. These interactions reve…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy, I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Last week we read “feminism is for everybody” by bell hooks. I love bell hooks for so many reasons - she is so thorough in her thinking, exploring all sides of every issue, she is always grounded in both truth and love, and she has a manner that is accessible to everyone, whether yo…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today we are going to discuss one of the most clearly-written, accessible texts on Patriarchy and Feminism that I’ve ever read. It’s called “feminism is for everybody: passionate politics,” and it’s by the iconic author, professor, cultural critic and social activist, bell hooks. It…

Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. A few years ago I was traveling in Asia and we took a bus out to a large lake where there was a floating village. As we took a boat out onto the lake and the shore disappeared behind us, I felt as far from home as I have ever felt, and a friend I was with was even more out of her el…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. For me, one of the most memorable quotes from Tara Westover’s book, Educated is where she says, “Never again would I allow myself to be made a foot soldier in a conflict I did not understand.” In our previous episode, I described exactly this phenomenon in my own life: When I voted …
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today we are presenting a four-part series on patriarchy and the LGBTQ community with the crux being the Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges, in 2015, which granted same-sex couples the right to marry, and effectively overruled states’ rights to prohibit same-sex marriage. My gu…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today’s book is called The Gender Knot: Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy, and it’s the first text we’ve read that was written by a man since we read John Stuart Mill’s The Subjection of Women several months ago! I have loved reading all of these books by women, but as I read this b…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest.

Welcome to Episode 18 of Series 2, where we finish our dive into toxic masculinity on a high by having our very first interview with the awesome Alex Shafiro.

Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest.

Welcome to Episode 17 of Series 2 where we dive into toxic masculinity: What does it mean? What are its ties with toxic femininity and is that even a thing? The short answer is no, it's not, it's a "men's rights" dog whistle but we digress. We talk about how kind, caring, nurturing little boys grow into unemotional but overly aggressive men and wha…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Thus far on Breaking Down Patriarchy, we’ve talked a lot about how the system of patriarchy has impacted women, but we haven’t talked much about what it means to be a woman. Simone de Beauvoir famously said “one is not born, but becomes, woman,” and we talked about the concept that …
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. I remember one time several years ago, my husband and I were getting ready to go out somewhere fancy. I took a shower, shaved my legs and underarms, dried off, moisturized with one lotion for my body and one lotion for my face, blow-dried my recently-color-treated hair to make it st…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I bought the book Sister Outsider, by Audre Lorde, several months ago in preparation for this episode, and every time I passed it on my bookshelf, those two words would drop into my consciousness and stay there for awhile. Two words that are so laden with meaning and emotion, and are complete opposites. A s…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Last week we discussed the book Women, Race, and Class, by the controversial intellectual and cultural icon, Angela Davis. That book was published in 1981, and undertakes the telling of American history with Black women as the main focal point. This week’s book was also published in…
 
The Capitol Insurrection. It's our generation's Kennedy assassination, except way more significant. Most people alive in Nov. 1963 remember where they were when they heard the news that the President had been shot. In an instant, American life changed forever as a nation lost its innocence, and the course of world history was altered. But Jan. 6, 2…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today’s book is Women, Race, and Class, by Angela Davis, and when I was reading this book in preparation for the episode last month, I left my copy of it out on my kitchen table. A person I know who is a generation older than I am walked past and raised her eyebrows and said “hmmm, …

Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today is Part 2 of our discussion on the 1973 Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade.

And again I…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today we will be talking about the 1973 Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade. This is such a complicated and delicate topic, and there is so much to discuss, we decided to break up the conversation into two parts. So today will be Part 1 and next time we will resume with Part 2. In prepa…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Today’s text is Title IX, which is the most well-known portion of the United States Education Amendments, passed in 1972. This is an incredibly important piece of legislation, and we’re going to get into its history, the way it impacts people’s lives, and the way it is or isn’t enfo…
 
Welcome to Episode 13 of Series 2 where we're discussing fatphobia in the workplace. We talk about the lack of government protection against weight-based discrimination, dive into statistics of how people with larger bodies are viewed and treated in the corporate world and how sexism and racism intersect with this.

Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. Our book today was published in 1970, and it’s called Our Bodies, Ourselves: A Book By and For Women.

We work through 8 key points, starting with acknowledging that all mothers work (whether or not they get paid for it..!) and finishing with the need to show up every day for that partnership. We tal…
 
Welcome! Let’s dive right in by sharing some passages that we thought were important. First, Millett starts the book with some passages from Henry Miller’s book Sexus, published in the 40’s in Paris but banned in the United States because of anti-pornography laws. And it actually is pornography. I had never read Henry Miller before and was totally …
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. I first encountered feminism when I was a Freshman in college. I was in an English class, and one of our main text books was on Critical Theory, which are different ways of approaching a work of literature. You can approach a work through a Historical lens, looking at what was going…
 
Welcome to Episode 11 of Series 2, we start with a brief discussion of important statistics for Black women, women of Colour and women from LGBTQIA+ communities. Due to a technical error, they were not included in last week’s episode, Shecession. Next, we define what gender contamination is, what it means as a marketing term and how it draws from a…
 
Amy: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. I remember one day when I was about 25 years old, I was talking with a friend and she mentioned the Equal Rights Amendment, and I said something like, “Yeah, of course. So important, right?” And I think from my response my friend could tell I had only vaguely heard of it, so she sai…
 
Allebest: Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! I’m Amy McPhie Allebest. This past year I watched the TV series Mad Men, which depicts life in 1960’s and 70’s America, especially focusing on gender dynamics. One of the most striking bits of dialogue - and it wasn’t emphasized so at a different time in my life it might have flown right past me withou…
