About this Episode

What exactly are "daddy issues" and why do people say women have them? Charlotte and Grace talk about the sexism of this term. They then delve into what they say as the real daddy issue: that dads somehow have ownership over their daughter's bodies and relationship choices. They revisit T.I. and his explanation of his comments on a recent episode of Red Table Talk and use this as a jumping off point for control of women's bodies under the guise of "protection." They talk about experiences with their own dads as well as how child-parent relationships relate to attachment theory. They talk about how dads can embrace feminist fatherhood and help raise strong, resilient daughters.
