FLAUNT!: Drop Your Cover and Reveal Your Smart, Sexy & Spiritual Self Audiobook

FLAUNT!: Drop Your Cover and Reveal Your Smart, Sexy & Spiritual Self

Author: Lora Cheadle Narrator: Allyson Ryan Release Date: October 2019

Attractive woman, savvy career professional, devoted wife and mother, caring daughter-the list of roles women play is endless. And while women may have chosen and cherish these roles, that doesn't mean they may not occasionally-or more than occasionally-chafe. What is there behind these roles? Lora Cheadle, who felt trapped in the successful lawyer persona she'd crafted, believes there is joy, laughter, and self-love based not on performing roles perfectly but on being oneself, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. While she used the principles of burlesque to peel away the layers she'd built up around her core self, she also found that the laughter and parody inherent in burlesque could liberate women from their wounds, fears, and inhibitions even if they don't set foot on an actual stage. While Flaunt! dives deep into how and why listeners got where they are, it quite literally dances through these realizations and uses laughter, play, and storytelling to break free. Listeners learn to cultivate the kind or rock-solid self-worth that cannot be undone by criticism or failure. Cheadle calls herself a life choreographer because she has helped herself, and now helps others dance through their lives, sometimes with well-plotted steps and other times with improvisation but always, always with self-love, sass, and joy.

High Heel Audiobook

High Heel

Author: Summer Brennan Narrator: Allyson Ryan Release Date: July 2019

Fetishized, demonized, celebrated, and outlawed, the high heel is central to the iconography of modern womanhood. But are high heels good? Are they feminist? What does it mean for a woman (or, for that matter, a man) to choose to wear them? Meditating on the labyrinthine nature of sexual identity and the performance of gender, High Heel moves from film to fairytale, from foot binding to feminism, and from the golden ratio to glam rock. Summer Brennan considers this most provocative of fashion accessories as a nexus of desire and struggle, sex and society, violence and self expression, setting out to understand what it means to be a woman by walking a few hundred years in her shoes. Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things, published in partnership with an essay series in the Atlantic.
