Fresh Talk with Patricia Leavy on Lighting Your Own Fire, Social Justice, and the Joy of Writing

Freedom & Empowerment

Eloquent best-selling author and women’s studies expert, Patricia Leavy, PhD, shares an insightful chat with Amy about everything from freedom of expression and arts based research to standing up for each other, diversity, feminism, and gender identity. As a writer and editor for Sense Publishers she also discusses being a woman in academia and being evaluated for your appearance and how that can disrupt your job performance. Leavy has published 18 books including the wildly popular “Low Fat Love” and “American Circumstance.” The Examiner named her the “high priestess of pop feminism.”
