Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.

Episode 80: Unlearning Traditional Gender Norms to Move Towards Household Equality with Kate Mangino, PhD
Gender norms are slowly changing in the everyday household. Men used to be the income providers and bring home the money while women would take care of the children and house chores. Since times have been changing, women are expecting more from their partners even as little as switching caregiving roles so the women can have some time to themselves for a minute or two.
The women in my community have loved Kate’s book Equal Partners and requested to have her on as a guest. Kate’s role and expertise in social changes provides incredible insight into hard hitting questions from the community and change.
Kate Mangino, PhD is a gender expert and professional facilitator who works with international non-profit organizations to promote positive social change. She has written and delivered curricula in over 20 countries about issues such as: gender equality, women’s empowerment, healthy masculinity, HIV prevention, and early and forced childhood marriage.
She brings her lens of gender and social change to her debut book, Equal Partners, which addresses household gender inequality in the United States and offers practical advice as to what each of us can do to rewrite gender norms.
While we are still working on changing social norms in this generation. In today’s episode, we talk about gender norms and creating household balance. Kate will share what she learned during her research for her book, and she gives some excellent suggestions on how to raise conversations with your partner about gender. She will also share some data on raising boys and give some tips on how we can raise our boys to be caregivers as they grow older.
