I talk about an experience I had when called a slag for wearing a short skirt.  I discuss how it impacted me on a rare night out without my children, and how verbal abuse of women is far too readily accepted in society.

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 054 – Shame Them Whilst They’re Young

Today I talk about schools banning girls from wearing skirts or fitted clothes because it’s distracting for male pupils and staff.  I discuss how this pattern of blaming girls for the behaviour of men starts at such a young age, and how it’s time to put an end to it.

Episode 051 – FGM

The Writer Mum Podcast – Episode 051 – FGM

This episode comes with a TRIGGER WARNING.  I discuss female genital mutilation, how girls are put through this horrific abuse, and how we all need to be aware so more can be done to stop it.  I ask that you share this, share any social media on it, and share news articles you see.  Too few people are aware.

Tonight I talk about the importance of teaching children about consent, respecting that no means no, and the value in self respect.  All without teaching them shame about their bodies or sexuality.  And how difficult that is when they’re too young to understand why it’s important.
