In this episode, you will hear the voices of women who have over 230 years between them. We talk about everything from growing up in a rigid Catholic household and how it affected sexuality, to why we still want to please our parents even when we have our own kids, to living with an alcoholic who was a hero of the community. Oh, and doctors refusing to prescribe birth control to married women. !! We talk about my aunt’s non-profit (avisionforcleanwater.org)to get remote villages clean water and a family member who chooses a life as a cloistered nun with little contact with the outside world.Listen up for quotes like this: “I was livid at myself for having allowed myself for that many years to rely on somebody else to make my moral choices.” Fascinating women.
