This week our guest is Jodie Patterson – MOTHER SOciAL ACTIVIST ENTREPRENEUR and AUTHOR author of The Bold World: A Memoir of Family and Transformation and more recently A Boy Named Penelope.
What a moving and inspiring conversation we have together. We talk about mothering in its broadest sense, redefining how we mother, and how we talk to our children about race. And of course mothering as activism.
Jodie has been lauded for her activist work by Hillary Clinton, The Advocate, Family Circle, Essence, Cosmopolitan, and Yahoo!, among others. She sits on the board of a number of gender/family/human rights organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign, and is a sought-after public speaker addressing a wide range of audiences about identity, gender, beauty, and entrepreneurship. Patterson was appointed by the United Nations as a Champion of Change.
