Patterns of Patriarchy – Herstory Rising

The extent to which patriarchal history still shapes women’s lives today is extraordinary. In this episode, we explore just quite how much – from medical treatment, women’s experiences in employment, and the social expectations placed upon them.

Chrissy Ward offers a fascinating insight into how this history plays out every day in women’s lives.

Chrissy Ward describes herself as a woman, a witch and a fellow human. It’s time to embrace our inner goddesses! Its been a rocky road … not the chocolate type! I’m a survivor and want to help my fellow goddesses on their pathways.
