Feminist Folklore

29 EpisodesProduced by Skylark MediaWebsite

Feminist Folklore examines fairy tales, myths, and legends from around the world through a feminist lens, asking the question: how do the stories we tell about girls and women inform our attitudes about gender, sexuality, and more?

10: The Girl with the Horse's Head

This week, Carlea shares a myth from China about the goddess of silk worms, who has a more upsetting origin story than you might expect. It definitely involves way more dead horses than anticipated (only one, but that's still too many!).

Content Warning: This episode involves discussion of violence against women and against animals.
