In this episode of the Holistic Wealth podcast with Keisha Blair, we discuss women transitioning back to the office during COVID-19, flexible work policies, and women’s economic security. As Eve stated on the podcast: “society has been built on the backs of the unpaid labour of women and the unpaid and undervalued labour of women of colour and that's no longer sustainable”. Hear Eve’s thoughts on white feminism. In Eve’s words: it's “incumbent on white presenting women that we understand what “care feminism” is - that we are not this boss feminism, this individualistic feminism, that notion has to be burned and we have to come back to the table to recognize everybody's lived experience and to fight for other people's lived experiences”.
