In Locker Room Talk, we listen in on the epic and ordinary moments that happen when women are together. Subverting the traditional idea of “locker room talk,” this collection illuminates the conversations women share with family, friends, and strangers, whether at the sinks of the First Avenue ladies’ room, on a bus heading to the Women’s March in Washington, D.C., or in the kitchen of an elder relative. Cumulatively, they reveal the myriad ways women care for themselves, each other, their communities, and our world–and how we all can follow suit. It is a celebration. An imagining. A call to action.
