We are back in Catt's bedroom this week, and this time, she's joined by Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson - founders of the nonprofit Kind Campaign that aims to end girl-on-girl bullying in our schools.
The two real-life best friends share a behind-the-scenes look at how they bonded over being bullied as young girls and why they decided to channel that pain into something productive. After meeting in college, Lauren and Molly joined forces and decided to travel the country to make a documentary on the "mean girl" phenomenon, and what we can do to foster forces of kindness instead.
The film grew into an international movement, and the women now work with schools across the globe through in-person assemblies (when those were allowed) and educational curriculum, to help promote inclusivity, love and acceptance among girls and teens.
Lauren also shares a peek at what it's like to be married to actor Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad, BoJack Horseman) and how his support has made it possible for Kind Campaign to climb to new heights. And in this episode, Catt shares a story about experiencing harassment by fellow females during her freshman year of high school - and who stepped in to stand up for her.
*A note, this was taped months before the Coronavirus hit, so the interview was done in-person in Catt's homeSee omnystudio.com/policies/listener for privacy information.
