Beth Bartlett, Ph.D., is an educator, author, activist and spiritual companion.  She is also Professor Emerita of Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies at the University of Minnesota-Duluth.  She's authored numerous books and articles making her the perfect guest to discuss how patriarchy has been able to divide and conquer, turning women against each other by status, race, class, ethnicity and in competition for men.  We'll discuss the pros and cons of sisterhood and a new notion of "sistering" that might be a more hopeful path toward healing our relationships with each other.   Quote from Beth Bartlett:  ""Sisterhood is not about unity, about women coming together and agreeing about everything.  It's about women acting in solidarity with each other, listening and responding, acting and advocating, showing up to do the work.  Sisterhood is about honoring and acting on the obligation we have to each other.
