About this Episode

Being “Not Like Other Girls” may seem like a harmless quirk but its stems from patriarchal ideas and pits women against each other. When we characterize ourselves at the expense of other women we harm ourselves and our relationship with the women in our lives. Competition among women is commonly portrayed in media and further isolates us from creating true and meaningful female friendships.

We also dive into the “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” trope and how it perpetuates the idea that women’s purpose is to help a boy fully actualize into a man.
