Kindreds is a podcast for soul sisters, hosted by Ashley Peterson and Katey Zeh. In each episode we take on all things faith, feminism, and friendship from our homes in the South. We ask questions like:
- What do we really mean when we call girls “bossy”?
- Is it true that women can’t get along with each other at work?
- How do we unpack the complicated messages we got about gender at church?
Who We Are
A native Mississippian and a lifelong United Methodist, Ashley Peterson is the founder and director of Faith in Women, a network of faith leaders working to make Mississippi a better, more equitable place for women and girls. Ashley has spent her career as a health educator, counselor, and advocate for low-income women and families across the South. A question-asker and wisdom-seeker since she first learned to talk, Ashley has never let “because that’s the way it is” or even “because the Bible says so” stop her from pursuing life’s most complex and fundamental questions.
Katey Zeh is an ordained Baptist minister, author, strategist, and speaker who works at the intersections of faith and gender justice. She is the CEO of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. Her first book Women Rise Up on biblical women resisting oppression was published in 2019. She lives in North Carolina with her family. You can follow her on Twitter (@kateyzeh) and Instagram (@kateyzeh).
