A new narrative for women

Breaking Glass Podcast

Let’s talk about womanhood around the world. Despite making up over half of the global population, women control less wealth, own less land, hold fewer public offices, and shoulder more domestic burdens. But in every corner of every country there are individuals with enough gumption to break the system and bend the rules. These are the stories of those glass breakers, these are the voices imagining a new narrative for women everywhere.
