Today, I’m talking rakes, rakesses, and historically ferocious women with Scarlett Peckham. We talk about what she calls her feminist primal scream book, The Rakess, about steely steadfast cinnamon roll heroes, and we deep dive into what we love about characters who destabilize and unpeel one another emotionally and, uh, literally. Also: a sneak peek into what’s next in her Sirens series and for the Charlotte Street series! TW/CW: talk about sexual harassment, the price of being female and speaking up for yourself, the challenges of owning sexuality, domestic violence, workplace harassment and assault, and specific crimes against women – to quote Feminist Survival Project hosts Emily and Amelia Nagoski, Patriarchy, UGH. Thank you to Jacqueline, Carrie, Aarya, Leigh, and Claudia for the questions!
