Episode details

Since the sexual revolution, women’s lives have undergone dramatic changes. The dominant narrative is that liberal feminism has freed women in profound ways. So why does data show that women’s happiness has actually declined?

My guest on the podcast today argues that the sexual revolution has, in fact, failed women.


Louise Perry is a British writer and activist. She’s a columnist at The New Statesmen and a features writer for The Daily Mail. Her brilliant debut is called The Case Against the Sexual Revolution: A New Guide to Sex in the 21st Century.

I’m thrilled to have Louise Perry as my guest — today, on Lean Out. Transcript to come tomorrow for paid subscribers.
