In this episode, I spoke with Louise Perry. Louise is a writer, journalist, and a campaigner based in London. In 2022 she co-founded a non-partisan feminist think tank called The Other Half, where she serves as Research Director. She’s the author of the debut book, “The Case Against the Sexual Revolution: A New Guide to Sex in the 21st Century,” which was released in the U.S. in August 2022.
Together, Louise and I discussed common sense feminism, the sexual revolution, the feminist case for marriage, the digital harem, and much more.
