Mother Ffffeminist

BY KIM JORGENSEN GANE
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 16, 2017

Kim Jorgensen Gane is a local producer and co-director of the national live storytelling show called Listen to Your Mother. Kim is a writer and a Realtor® and she recently ran for public office.

She and her husband Scott have raised a generation of girls to married adulthood, and they are now raising two high school-aged boys, one of whom is their nephew.

Mother Ffffeminist, she’s got a lot to say about motherhood, marriage, what feminism really means, and how the sexes can come together to heal the divides in our current hyper-sexualized political and social climate. You don’t have to agree, but you really should hear her answers to questions like, “why did women march on January 21st?” You might just discover that we’re really not as far apart as the “sides” want us to believe.
