Episode 054 – Shame Them Whilst They’re Young

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.

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.
