This episode we are diving into all things girl boss & white feminism, and discuss how capitalist structures are anti-feminist at their core.
We discuss the rise and fall of Nasty Gal and the girlboss trope, as well as touching on the Chidera Eggerue/Florence Given plagiarism allegations.
Lastly, we delve deeper into feminism as an ideology, and talk about how an intersectional approach is the way to move forwards if we want to destroy this white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy.
