A very special episode with thanks to our friends at The Women’s Bookshop.
They said it couldn’t be done. They said we couldn’t get Clementine Ford back to do another pod. But we did, and here it is. Promoting her new book Boys Will Be Boys, Clementine spends an hour in The Spinoff studio to answer everything you’ve ever wanted to know about feminism, the patriarchy, and dealing with goblins and/or trolls.
What is toxic masculinity? How does she feel about ACT kicking up a stink over her speaking event? And what does “boys will be boys” really mean in 2018? Pour yourself a glass of strong something and get involved with the official hashtag #otrpod, or click here to like us on Facebook.
