10. Woman and Weddings: Katrina Majkut, The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride

Katrina MajkutKatrina MajkutGuest

In this episode, I talk with Katrina Majkut about her book, The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride.

Katrina demonstrates how there is no such thing as traditional marriage or wedding as both have been evolving for centuries, and the importance of updating our outdated traditions that support the wage gap, street harassment, sex and gender discrimination, and limit reproductive rights.

Some topics of discussion include:

  1. Gendered socialisation that begins long before the legal marriage age
  2. The importance of language and the decision to change your name, or not
  3. Bachelorette parties and the very minor differences in duties for bridesmaids and groomsmen
  4. Why revisiting our marital traditions is necessary in the fight for gender equity
  5. Ways to modernise a wedding without compromising on what's important to you

And more!
