The Path to Authenticity
103. Feminist Philosopher Heather Stewart

Falling in Love with Philosophy

Episode 103 of The Path to Authenticity features my conversation with feminist philosopher Heather Stewart, a doctoral student at the University of Western Ontario. Heather focuses primarily on bioethics, feminist philosophy, social and political philosophy, and queer theory. We talk about inequities in the American healthcare system and the inherently problematic nature health insurance. We also touch on misogyny the workplace and the ways powerful women, who challenge patriarchal structure in politics and elsewhere, tend to be labeled. Thank you for listening. Enjoy.  -tg

The Path to Authenticity is a podcast for people looking for more from life. It focuses on emotional wellness and starts from the premise that our true power comes from our individuality. We talk to various types of writers and artists as well as therapists, coaches, teachers, entrepreneurs, and professionals of all kinds. Our guests possess one common trait. They’re people who know who they are.  We talk about what makes them who they are, how they became who they are, and how we might become truer expressions of who we are.

Be nice.
