    The Patriarchy & Your Menstrual Cycle

     

    On today's podcast my guest Elaine Westcott and I chat about what the patriarchy is and how it works against your biological hormones as a woman who cycles. We also want to make sure it's clear the patriarchy doesn't mean men are bad or evil. The patriarchy is simply the structure that we have set up in society that may be outdated.
