There's a common misconception that being a "real feminist" means prioritizing your career over your romantic life, but Mica is here to discuss why that's a load of bunk! Part of being a feminist is doing what makes you feel happy and empowered, and sometimes that means following your heart. In this episode, Mica examines the tension between feminism and romance, and recounts a particularly formative experience in which she "took a chance on love," as in, she fell hard for an Aussie and, after their three-day fling in Hollywood, decided it was a good idea to follow him back to Sydney and move in with him. So, yes, lots to unpack here.
