How history says you’re doing it wrong

Posted in Feed Play Love.

If you’ve ever had a niggling doubt that you’re doing it wrong – whether ‘it’ is parenting, partnering or any other kind of activity – and you also happen to be a woman, chances are your doubt has history. And I’m talking a lot of what author and journalist Kaz Cooke calls “bad and bonkers advice to women”. Her new book You’re Doing It Wrong outlines all of the bad advice that has been given to women over the centuries. 

Kaz talks about how ideas like a ‘wandering uterus’ and concepts of female beauty have been keeping women down for years, and why the sisterhood is key to smashing through the terrible advice we’ve been hearing.
