That is because the topics may include discussions that can be triggering for people. This episode does have some difficult topics so please be aware and take care of yourself.

There are 2 audio clips from the podcast called No Filter with Mia Freedman.

This episode was called Germaine Greer won’t be defined by her rape

Another quote by Germaine Greer, “You only have the power of consent when you can escape from the situation”.

The title of this episode is compliant women. My Grandmother was non-compliant but my mother was. However, I was mainly influenced on a daily basis by my mother so, I learned  compliance and actually was taught how to distain non-compliance I saw in my grandmother. Being a compliant person for nearly 40 years, I know what it is like to walk in the shoes of women who are afraid to stop being compliant.
