Intentional Well-Being Podcast: Unpacking the Patriarchy
In this episode, I get to speak to author and best-seller of Patriarchy Blues, Fredrick T. Joseph about what it means to dismantle oppression and really unpacking so we can understand patriarchy and what it has taken away from men in today’s society.
Let’s be real here, patriarchy has us looking through it through a white women’s lens. And toxic masculinity doesn’t just appear in men, it also appears in women. I can wholeheartedly admit to that.
Let’s unpack this on both sides, shall we?
How can we evolve conversations as a collective and get curious about what is begin said and the intention behind what is begin said. Do we have the capability to seek the honest truth and are we able to hear it when it is spoken to us?
