  • Winner of the She Writes Press and SparkPress Toward Equality in Publishing contest, Veena Rao, knows what it's like to have to start life over from scratch. She came to the US from India to create a whole new life and then spent 10 years pouring her lessons learned, observations, and inspiration into her book, Purple Lotus. Purple Lotus, is a beautiful story personalizing the immigrant experience with a universal message: there’s hope even if you feel inadequate, powerless, fearful. It is never too late to take control of your life – we must choose to live, not just exist. Dealing with themes of domestic violence, fighting the patriarchy, and seeking the right to self-determination, Purple Lotus is a story inspired by Rao’s own experiences as an Indian immigrant in Atlanta, GA.

  • An accomplished writer and media personality, Janice Kaplan knew she had a great book idea on her hands when she realized that “genius” is a word used to describe men, but not often women. Not even very accomplished and genius women. That’s why she wrote, “The Genius of Women,” her latest book highlighting, you guessed it, genius women who have been overlooked. Janice is on the show with us today discussing her process, what she learned about genius women, and why men get to be "genius," but women often do not.

  • This episode is for every woman who is considered “too much.” Too loud, too sexual, too edgy, too confident.

    In her new book, Too Much: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today, Rachel braids cultural criticism and storytelling together in an exploration of how culture grinds away at the bodies, souls, and sexualities of women, forcing them into smaller lives than they desire.

    In this episode:

    Why women who step out of expected roles are considered “too much”, and even dangerous. What vampires and Alice In Wonderland have to do with feminism How victorian era constraints continue to plague women today

  • S6E2: How To Break Through with Nicole D. Vick

    A college professor, community activist, and public health advocate, Nicole D. Vick published her first book, a memoir, called Pushing Through: Finding The Light In Every Lesson.

    She shares both the heartbreaking pain and the extraordinary triumphs that led her to advocacy and social justice work. Her story takes place against the background of the long-neglected and overlooked community of South-Central Los Angeles, where she grapples with the grotesque imbalance of power and privilege as it unfolds in every aspect of her life and those around her.

    It’s an inspiring story of triumph and purpose.

    In this episode:

    Realizing that you don’t have to be a statistic Where to find the inspiration to push through the toughest moments of your life Why continuing to push towards your biggest dreams
