In this episode, the Foundation for Change team discuss the topic of feminism. This is something that is very close to our hearts and the topic of gender and power is something that runs through all of our programmes, most obviously being central to our Feminism for Change programme.

Since it is such a huge subject the team discuss some of the broader points of feminism that are relevant to people in recovery and personal growth in general, some of the basic principles of feminist theory and briefly touch upon the herstory of its evolution. Feminist theory isn’t just one idea, but rather covers a lot of different ideas evolving across many different stages. One thread that does run throughout Feminist theory, however, is the desire to challenge existing power structures (“that’s just the way things are”) that oppress people.
