On this episode of the en(gender)ed podcast, our guest is Caitlin Myer, author of Wiving: A Memoir of Loving Then Leaving the Patriarchy. We speak to Caitlin today about her experience growing up Mormon, leaving the church, and the role of religion, gender, and sex on shaping her own experience of womanhood. Our conversation also explores Caitlin’s struggle to understand and negotiate her status as “wife” and “wiving” and how this concept both informed and shaped her trauma, relationships, and healing journey. We consider the ways in which these patterns are shared by all women, while also envisioning a way to break the cycle of suffering.
During our conversation, Caitlin and I referenced the following resources and topics:
- The documentary--"Cracked Up: The Darrell Hammond Story"
- Teaching consent to children
- The sexualization of children
