Kelly S Thompson is writer and former Captain in the Canadian Armed forces. She's also the author of the brilliant new memoir, "Girls Need Not Apply," which delves into the highs and lows of her experience in the military. We're talking sexism, competition, anxiety, and...finding love! Mica and Kelly also get into how easy it is to accept or even replicate misogynist behaviour when all you want to do is FIT IN, in addition to how beauty and a want for validation intersect with military life. Also: what happens when your professional and romantic life intersect? How do you handle situations where everyone feels entitled to discuss your sex life? Kelly has some thoughts on it ALL.
