Be pretty, but please… don’t speak your mind. It’s this message that turns girls from confident and unapologetic kids, too timid and self-doubting teenagers. Gemma Sheehan, a former MMA fighter, sees this first hand every day. She teaches girls not only how to physically defend themselves, but also how to build confidence and be assertive in life. She shares the problematic differences she sees between girls and boys, and how she helps girls build the kind of mental strength that she believes is missing from the women’s empowerment movement.HOST: Claire Brassard / GUEST: Gemma Sheehan, Former MMA fighter, founder of Girls Who Fight Audio Playerhttp://media.blubrry.com/thebigstory/s/radio.pmd.rogersdigitalmedia.com/podcasts/thebigstory/tbs_03072019.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.last_img
