Amelia Hruby is a feminist writer, educator and podcaster with a Ph.D. Join her in a discussion about her new book, Fifty Feminist Mantras.
An illustrated journal for feminists looking to raise their consciousness and strengthen their well-being in a positive, inclusive, and radical way.
Fifty Feminist Mantras began as a weekly blog post and blossomed into a year-long project with the purpose of helping readers embrace feminism and themselves as feminists. Inside are fifty mantras—memorable phrases or words—arranged by week and season. Each mantra is paired with guided reflections and writing prompts, along with journal pages for readers to fill.
As we consider soft power, I invite you to experiment with growing softer. How might this make you more powerful?
Enact Your Emotions:
Which of your emotions lead you toward other people and into action with them? (Does being angry rile you up the most? Being hurt? Falling in love? Feeling scammed?) How you can express those emotions with purpose?
