Our guest for this episode is the leading feminist campaigner and best-selling author Clementine Ford! We talk about everything from toxic masculinity and dealing with trolls to teaching our kids about consent.
There's some chat about motherhood, and Clementine explains how the experience of giving birth strengthened her commitment to fighting for abortion rights. We get some practical advice about raising our children to be feminists and the best baby shower gift you can give, plus we discover an unexpected link between Brussesl sprouts and anal sex.
We also talk about climate change and what we can do to be part of the solution. We finish up with a Scummy Mummies podcast first - a Confession that unravels live during the recording.
Clementine's books, Boys Will Be Boys and Fight Like a Girl, are out now. You can follow her on Facebook and Twitter @clementine_ford.
