We naively thought we could talk about dismantling the patriarchy in one or two episodes. In real time we realized this needed to be a series.  in "Dismantling The Patriarchy" we explore how all perpetuate patriarchy, how we are all harmed by it, and ways we can begin to dismantle it across five everyday life categories. In Pt.1 we explore the patriarchy's impact on our relationships, identity, and sex life.
