This week's episode is timed for International Women's Day 2019, and features a conversation with British Syrian queer poet, essayist, and performer, Lisa Luxx. The video for Lisa's new single, Girl Gang, features footage collected from sisterhoods from the UK, Nambia, California, Beirut, across Canada, mainland Europe, Australia and beyond.

An ode to intersectional feminism and the emotional bonds which unite womxn everywhere, this conversation contains beautiful truths about the power of collaboration, empathy, and listening, when it comes to creating a world where everybody - regardless of gender expression - feels safer to be themselves. Ruby and Lisa also discuss:

Why the ancient art of poetry is the perfect medium for the Instagram age

The relevance of International Women's Day in 2019

Intersectional feminism vs. a fractured feminism

Cultivating sisterhood on an emotional and spiritual level

Why overcoming our insecurities is how we become, and create, safe space in the world

Why taking time to listen to others is the ultimate act against the patriarchy
