In this episode of At Home, Rachel Reeves tackles a big subject: feminism. But Rachel handles it in such an approachable, thoughtful, and honest way, that we all ended up enjoying a conversation that at first felt a bit overwhelming.
Rachel begins by explaining the history of feminism and how it has changed over time. And then we go on to discuss such ideas as: can women have it all, do women need men, are there dangerous ideas in feminism, and why submission has gotten such a bad name.
Its a pretty loaded episode!
And by the end of it, all of us had cried once. Or twice. So please don’t mind the sniffing. Or our choked up voices. We may have new mikes to help us sound professional, but we’re still just real life women who are sometimes can’t help crying over a quote from a great book!

Quote from Caddie Woodlawn
“It’s a strange thing, but somehow we expect more of girls than of boys. It is the sisters and wives and mothers, you know, Caddie, who keep the world sweet and beautiful. What a rough world it would be if there were only men and boys in it, doing things in their rough way! A woman’s task is to teach them gentleness and courtesy and love and kindness. It’s a big task, too, Caddie–harder than cutting trees or building mills or damming rivers. It takes nerve and courage and patience, but good women have those things. They have them just as much as the men who build bridges and carve roads through the wilderness. A woman’s work is something fine and noble to grow up to, and it is just as important as a man’s.”
