That's What She Did Podcast

Oct 29, 2020

This episode is for every woman who is considered “too much.” Too loud, too sexual, too edgy, too confident.

In her new book, Too Much: How Victorian Constraints Still Bind Women Today, Rachel braids cultural criticism and storytelling together in an exploration of how culture grinds away at the bodies, souls, and sexualities of women, forcing them into smaller lives than they desire. 

In this episode: 

  • Why women who step out of expected roles are considered “too much”, and even dangerous.
  • What vampires and Alice In Wonderland have to do with feminism
  • How victorian era constraints continue to plague women today
