Brené Brown Talks to The Shriver Report: The Power of Shame on Women Living on the Brink

As part of our series on A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brinkin partnership with Center for American Progress, I wanted to ask Brené how shame and vulnerability impact, and perhaps compound, the issues that are a part of financial insecurity. 

TSR: What’s the antidote to that?


Brené: Empathy is the antidote to shame. Where that’s really going to come from is community, a community of people who are facing the same struggle. It’s the only way I think change happens. Not only about organizing the community for change, but also with practical support with things like shared babysitting and grocery co-ops. But the obstacle is that we foresee any kind of dependence on other people as weakness.
