“…only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.”
-Audre Lorde

Welcome to
Season Two of
Breaking Down Patriarchy

Welcome to Breaking Down Patriarchy! During Season One of this podcast, we laid the groundwork for understanding Patriarchal systems and how they’ve functioned in Western Civilization, mostly focused on Europe and the United States.  In Season Two we will feature dozens of unique voices – all of them discussing aspects of Patriarchy that they’ve have witnessed in their own lives.

Patriarchy impacts all people, regardless of gender, all over the world. This unjust construct (defined by the dictionary as “a system of society or government in which men hold the power and women are largely excluded from it”) has caused inestimable harm throughout the centuries… and yet we learn almost nothing about it in school. Deconstructing patriarchy in our minds, our relationships, and our communities benefits everyone.

We envision a world in which all human beings are able to flourish and to reach their unique potential. We strive to include as many voices as possible, and our work is intersectional and inclusive. We are also firmly committed to the well-being of boys and men, and we enthusiastically and gratefully enlist the help of our non-female allies in creating an egalitarian world where everyone can thrive.
