In this episode of Tea & Tattle, Sophie and I discuss Shine Theory. The term was first coined by the journalist and podcaster Ann Friedman, and signifies the importance of female solidarity and choosing friendship over jealousy when confronted with successful, inspiring women. Shine Theory resonates with both Sophie and me, and today we bounce ideas off each other as to how we can celebrate the women we admire, strategies for banishing negative emotions such as jealousy and envy and ideas for how to best approach and befriend amazing women.
