Modern Family: With Orange Jammies

Posted: January 24, 2012

“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

In our new series of podcasts, ‘Modern Family’, we explore the state of the modern Indian marriage with people from various walks of life.

First up on this 15-minute episode is Orange Jammies, a feminist blogger and (almost) newlywed, talking about her own marriage and how she has seen gender roles changing in our daily lives.

In this podcast we discuss:

– Housework – who does it and why?

– Nature vs. Nurture – what drives men and women toward an equal partnership?

– Role Models – the importance of role models from the opposite gender.

– Generation – the meaning of marriage for the younger set.

(The podcast begins with a discussion of a recent ad for a breakfast product – if you haven’t seen the ad in question, check it out here).
