Sara Sheridan is a novelist, campaigner, founder of the feminist perfume brand 'REEK', patron of the wonderful charity 'It's Good To Give' and one of the Saltire Society's list of 365 most influential Scottish women.
Sara Sheridan is also generous, passionate, brimming with empathy and fiercely intelligent. The treat in this is on The Grantidote and you, dear listener, because ALL of that woman-shaped-wonder comes over in Sara's stories about her grandmothers.
Kitty and Eva were women from very different backgrounds who shape and touch Sara's understanding everyday. Hearing about their lives as part of the tapestry of who Sara is offers a universally helpful critical perspective to grow with from beyond the years of these strong, hugely life-experienced women.
In Podcast Two, Sara and Heather talk everything from Brexit to intergenerational trauma, imposed and chosen identities, women's choices borne from poverty and the journeys those choices can take through joy, fear, safety and pride.
