Raise Her Up – Self-Belief, Growth… and the importance of Male Allyship

Raise Her Up returns for Season 2, with Sunday Times bestselling author Candice Brathwaite our first guest this year

The ‘Raise Her Up’ podcast from the GDST is back for Season 2, and we have an incredible guest to kick this year off!

Our guest for Episode 1 of Season 2 is Sunday Times bestselling author, presenter, journalist, fashionista and all round role model Candice Brathwaite. Her first book, ‘I Am Not Your Baby Mother’, addressed the issue she found when she became a mother herself: that the media landscape was absolutely not representative of her own experience as a woman of colour. Her follow up, ‘Sista Sister’, was a series of essays setting out for a younger generation what she would have liked to know herself about things like money, friendship, love and self-respect, when she was growing up. She is back with her first work of fiction: ‘a YA book, Cuts Both Ways’, a love story – and she joins us on Raise Her Up to talk about all this and more.
