S01E08 No Apologies

On today’s episode, we’re learning to stop apologizing for taking up space, speaking out, or simply existing as secular women. Our first segment is an introduction to two new PSF correspondents, Madonna deHeaux and Frida Nipple. Next, Bella Constrictor deconstructs advice from a Christian couples’ devotional book in another installment of Hisses and Kisses. Then Madonna brings an in-depth segment on the Day Without a Woman protest, including her experience at an event for that day in Washington Square Park. Following that, Frida Nipple introduces us to Microactivism, and, finally, we find out why Jesus is apparently the answer to every problem.
