#153: THE FEMALE GAZE

WHY EVERY WOMAN SHOULD READ ROMANCE NOVELS

New York Times Bestseller, Skye Warren, joins FGN to share how romance novels teach us about sex, consent and female empowerment. This is a safe space to shed the shame and explore the things we don’t say out loud. 

Skye has been a writer for the last ten years and sold over 1 million books. She discusses how she went from software management to dangerous romance author. 

We dive deep into the role of women in media, why the biggest selling genre is looked down on and how romance stories not only educate, but also empower women. 

Get ready to be inspired and think about romance a LOT differently.
