In this episode, Lindsy Wallace is joined by guest co-host and friend of the podcast Diana Oestreich in a conversation with Claire Swinarski of The Catholic Feminist Podcast to discuss the “F” word, as well as labeling ourselves and others.

In this episode, we:

  • Learn The Catholic Feminist Podcast origin story;
  • Unpack the definition of “feminist”;
  • Discuss the impacts of the feminist label in our current cultural climate;
  • Learn how we love one another even when we label ourselves differently;
  • Identify female saints and biblical mothers who can inspire us all!

Join us as we explore what it means to be a feminist, diving into what labels we claim and the good and bad that comes from claiming labels for ourselves and ascribing them to others.
