The Over-Sexualization of Women with Lili Boisvert



The Over-Sexualization of Women

From clothing to flirting, from our fascination with youth and innocence to the orgasm gap, every aspect of women's lives is dictated by their status as sex objects, and it's a problem. 

Journalist, columnist, actress, and now author Lili Boisvert wrote a book on how women are set up to fail at sex, the problem with over-sexualizing women and under-sexualizing men, and how we can start to reverse this dangerous dynamic.

What you'll learn (or why you should care):

• The dangers of women having a passive role in courtship, sex, and life

• Why the patriarchy insists that we do not sexualize men like we do women

• How we can begin to change the dynamics at play for more bedroom and worldwide equality
