Little Kids: Why Consent And Feminism Needs To Be A Family Matter

Welcome to This Glorious Mess Little Kids. A twice-weekly look at parenting as it really is - confusing, exhausting, inspiring, funny, and full of surprises. So many surprises!

We're always trying to protect our daughters. We tell them "don't ever let someone touch you", "boys tease you because they like you", but what is that telling our girls in the long run and why do we tend leave our boys out of the discussion? 

For International Women's Day, we wanted to turn our conversation to our little ones, particularly our boys. Mia Freedman, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Mamamia, joins us to talk about why and how she's raised little ones who believe in equal rights.


You can listen to Mia Freedman on our other podcasts, No Filter and Mamamia Out Loud!
