In today’s podcast, Dara is joined by Dr. Sarah Shafer and Dr. Esther Choo, calling out BS: Benevolent Sexism. Benevolent sexism says that women are affectionate, sensitive, and more compassionate than men. It tells women that they are better suited to be parents, so it is our obligation to prioritize child-rearing over our careers. The 3 FemInEMs discuss the how hard it might be to identify or address benevolent sexism.
