Episode 5: Sisterhood


Invisible Women is celebrating International Women’s Day by releasing Episode 5 early. It’s about the power of Sisterhood and women leading, supporting and empowering women and others with compassion, strategy, intelligence and bravery so everyone may benefit.

In this episode you'll hear how some women resistors worked in parallel to men, risking it all to save lives with a different set of values. This was done in secrecy because the pre-war cultural power gradient between women and men remained consistent throughout WW 2.

The women resistors who formed this type of sisterhood remained silent about their undercover activities so that the men in their families and resistance did not interfere. Since these same women had been assimilated into western cultural ideas that women were not capable or intelligent, where did their tenacious belief in themselves originate from?

In Sisterhood, I discuss ancient ways of being and how we may have access to these patterns at any time despite our acculturation.

Award winning Vancouver actor Lucia Frangione is the voice of Pet.
