Show Notes

Meno-rage: IYKYK. But why does it happen? Who do so many women from all walks of life relate to this volcano of anger? Is it just hormonal? Or is is cultural?

Mona Eltahawy is my guest this week, and we break down the cultural understanding of meno-rage, and what women can do about it.

Mona Eltahawy is a feminist author, commentator and disruptor of patriarchy. She is founder and editor-in-chief of the newsletter FEMINIST GIANT.

 Her first book Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution (2105) targeted patriarchy in the Middle East and North Africa and her second The Seven Necessary Sins For Women and Girls (2019) took her disruption worldwide. Her commentary has appeared in media around the world.
