The Punk Rock Spirit of the Virgin Mary

Katelyn and Roxy are joined by author Kaya Oakes as they talk about how women — past and present — are so often being shaped into the image men want. Including the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. 


Mary did you know we’d soften all your hard edges? Temper your anger? Moderate your radicalism?

To be a woman has always meant being caught between expectation and reality — between all that society says you should be and all that you believe you are not. In this episode, Katelyn and Roxy ask themselves what they like about being women — and how embracing those qualities can be revolutionary. They are joined by author Kaya Oakes to talk about how women — past and present — are so often being shaped into the image men want. Including the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God.
