Creator of the hit 'Guilty Feminist' podcast, Deborah Frances-White talks to Kathryn Ryan about the complexities of  being a 'woke' feminist, and trying to reconcile the desire to fight misogyny while getting caught up in trivial concerns.

For example, "I'm a feminist ....but…once, I went on a women's rights march, popped into a department store to use the loo, got distracted trying out face creams and when I came out, the march was gone."

So if you have an "I'm a feminist but .... " can you still make a difference?

Deborah Frances-White has been in New Zealand performing The Guilty Feminist in Christchurch, Wellington, and Auckland and tonight she'll be doing a charity show in Tauranga Baycourt Addison Theatre  with Theresa Gattung and Sharon Hunter. All proceeds raised will go to Cambodia Charitable Trust.
