Episode details

Along with women's empowerment and liberation has come the idea that women can and should "be like men," which has been applied to all sorts of things, including sex and drinking. While freeing women to be themselves and no longer be restricted to oppressive gender roles has undoubtedly been a good thing, is the push to behave "like men" harmful?

Sarah Hepola is the author of Blackout, a memoir about her relationship to alcohol and pattern of blacking out. I spoke with her recently about sex, relationships, drinking, alcoholism, feminism, and more.
