S107: Journal Club: Bodies
In today’s journal club, Whitney and Sarah discuss the challenges of having a body as a woman in academia. Body perceptions, clothing choices, hairstyles, and general physical presence have all played a part. They discuss self-policing and how they can even use aspects of their physical presence to gain strategic advantages at work. NOTE: This episode makes a brief reference to eating disorders. BTW, see if you can hear Louie in the background putting ice in his glass in the last 10 minutes of the show :).
