Episode Info:

Eve Eurydice speaks with Alexandra Gelbard, a sociologist focused on issues of the African diaspora in the Cuban community, about cross-cultural patriarchy & the exotification of the foreign female by the native male gaze. She describes the dynamic & positionality of working in all male spaces as a white woman. We discuss the caballerismo of most machismo that turns women into feeble accessible objects with no bodily autonomy. She gives us a lesson in Cuban spiritual lineages. She describes being followed in the streets by men who declare: I like your body! which is how EE grew up surrounded by men who feel entitled to any female bodies out of their family homes. We discuss bridging the inner split bn body & mind that patriarchy trains & controls us through & reclaiming our holistic beings. We touch on the importance of data collection for archival study & preservation. We look at human history (herstory) for the overview effect & we bear witness as we aim to embrace the power of the divine feminine in our daily lives personally, professionally, spiritually. --- Support this podcast:
