This week, Kyrie and Cori discuss books picked for Women’s Month! Kyrie also gives an overview/history of Women’s Month. This post does contain affiliate links for companies we have partnered with. Your clicks and purchases help us fund our operating costs.
During their discussion, Kyrie and Cori drink a whole leaf white tea made by The Tea Spot called the Meditative Mind. The tea has the taste of jasmine green tea, white tea, and rosebuds. This tea is meant to be calming and help reduce tension through aromatherapy. Kyrie prefers less flower taste, while Cori, as it turns out, has already had multiple cups of this one.
Cori subscribed for a tea box every month by Sips By, where they provide you with four teas to try, a reusable muslin tea bag, and disposable bags (amounting to 45 cups of tea). Head over to Sips By to fill out a profile and try it out yourself AND get $5 off your first box!
We had some technical difficulties, and actually did this episode twice!
Kyrie’s pick is The Underground Girls of Kabul: In Search of a Hidden Resistance in Afghanistan by Jenny Nordberg. This popular non-fiction read takes an immersive journalistic approach to explore the phenomenon of Afghan families turning one of their daughters into male child, at least until puberty. Although not publicly discussed, this is a socially acceptable option for families without a son and leads to more prestige for the family. Nordberg interviews various families who have done this along with young women who have had this experience.
Cori’s selection is All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation by Rebecca Traister. It provides a “quick overview” of women’s history and the feminist movement. Traister’s primary objective is to research and evaluate why women are marrying later along with the advantages and disadvantages that come with this trend.
