Stephanie Raffelock on Feminism, Role Models, Unlocking the Power of Midlife, & Creatix–the New Feminine Archetype

Stephanie Raffelock, author of the forthcoming book Creatix Rising, chats with me about the history of the feminist movement and the emergence of the new feminine archetype, the Creatix.

While the feminist movement depended on public figures like Gloria Steinem to gain attention, our grandmothers, mothers, and aunts shaped the movement and gave it momentum. They all did things no other woman had done before, opening the way for their daughters.

Listen as we share the powerful impact our mothers’ journeys had on our paths as women. I share the insights gained from watching my mother build a successful business after my father’s passing.  And, Stephanie shares what she learned from when her mother decided to quit her job over pay inequality.

We also talk about Stephanie’s new book, Creatix Rising: Unlocking the Power of Midlife Women. In this book, she proposes the dawn of a new feminine archetype–the Creatix—one that harnesses both the wisdom and creativity of midlife.
