Welcome to the very first episode of Her Own Words, a Dear Damsels podcast, in which we discuss the final three themes explored on DD in 2018: Comfort, Pride and Together.
As well as sharing our favourite pieces and talking about all of the topics that came out of the themes – including long-distance friendship, discomfort and pride as protest – we also bring you up to date with all that’s been happening on DD and in the wider world. Plus, we were delighted to feature our very first guest on the show, Molly Masters from feminist subscription box and platform Books That Matter.

This episode we kicked things off with a quote from Maya Angelou:
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
