I Am Caitlin Stasy

On this week's bonus episode, Shereen is joined by the one and only Caitlin Stasey. After Shereen finishes gushing about how much she respects Caitlin and the work she does, we talk about her work as a feminist, actor, and creative, and how she utilizes her social media platforms to speak out and lift others up, including being the founder of herself.com. We also get real and personal, talking about queerness, sexuality, our (often critical) relationships with our bodies, and ultimately learning to love and accept yourself. In our opinion, she's the best example of a true feminist. We're so excited for y'all to get to know her! Keep up with her on instagram @caitlinjstasey69!
