Episode 202: Why Telling Your Story Is Feminist

May 6th, 2023

In this episode of the Crafty Ass Female Podcast, Kristin talks to Vanessa and Carrie to explore the relationship between feminism and storytelling. This episode continues our series featuring scrapbookers from around the world, coming together to discuss how and why they scrapbook.

Topics we cover include:

  • Giving yourself the permission to take up space for your story and for yourself
  • How we're no longer satisfied with simple representation, and we need to see whole versions of ourselves represented somewhere - truly diverse portrayals of women's experiences
  • What makes telling your story a feminist act?
  • Your words are a very important tool in your scrapbooks - but so are color, texture, style and so much more! Embrace the accessibility of scrapbooking, where you don't need to just start writing.
