NYC-based filmmaker Amy DePaola asked me to be a guest on her fantastic new podcast Pink Among Men.
We spoke for an hour about Creating Feminist Media, my recent documentary, religion, mentorship, motherhood, and more. If you want to know more about me and what motivates my work, give it a listen below.
I also recommend subscribing to Amy's podcast. It's great.
Pink Among Men Episode 103:
Mentors, Religion, and Creating Feminist Media

Content warning: not for the faint of heart.
I wish we didn’t have to be nude to be noticed ... But given the game as it exists, women make decisions. For instance, the Miss America contest is in all of its states ... the single greatest source of scholarship money for women in the United States. If a contest based only on appearance was the single greatest source of scholarship money for men, we would be saying, "This is why China wins." You know? It’s ridiculous. But that’s the way the culture is. I think that we need to change the culture, not blame the people that are playing the only game that exists.
