This episode is a look at the stories children learn through books, movies & video games that teach screwed-up gender roles. Hosts Buffie & Carolyn discuss the origins of those stories, (commonly known as Fairy Tales), how Hollywood & pop culture has perpetuated these harmful myths, & what is changing.
Featuring guest Lily Baber-Coyle, founder and owner of Beaver Pond Press and author of Princess and the Pee, a feminist play on the classic story.
