Makeup ‘vs’ #Feminism & Femme #EmotionalLabor w/ @lachristagreco #KatieSpeakShow Ep103 08/27/2017

In brief: Finally! Lachrista Greco of Guerrilla Feminism and I connected for a chat about her new YouTube channel combining her love of makeup and social justice as well as the intensely imbalanced expectation on women and femmes to perform endless emotional labor for bosses, family, partners, friends — every body. This topic is increasingly important as we take on the work of bolstering for and surviving new attacks almost daily.
