Episode details

Meghan Murphy speaks with Marilyn Simon, a Shakespeare scholar and university instructor, about modern feminism, objectification, bodies, humourless people, resilience, and more.  Marilyn has written a number of articles for Quillette, exploring issues like feminism, sex, objectification, narcissism, victimhood, and femininity. I often find myself agreeing with some aspects and disagreeing in other areas. Marilyn is currently working on a book, entitled, Lovers: A Humanist's Ode to Sex.
