In this special report I interview Dr. Jessica Taylor, forensic psychologist, CEO of Victim Focus and author of ‘Women Are Blamed for Everything: Exposing the Culture of Victim Blaming’ and her new book ‘Sexy But Psycho: Uncovering the Psychiatric Labelling of Women and Girls.’
Strap yourself in as Dr Jessica Taylor and I deconstruct how the criminal and civil justice systems and social and medical systems and models routinely position, demonize and pathologize women as ‘hysterical’ ‘unhinged’ ‘crazy’ ‘non-credible’ even if when many women come forward with allegations of abuse or if you are a successful, wealthy female mega star and icon, such as Britney Spears.
In order to understand what is happening to Britney Spears, we need to understand and examine the wider culture and ecosystem that enables men to claim and dominate the narrative and frame Britney - and women – without challenge.
We track back to Britney’s Disney days and forensically take a part the trajectory of pathologizing Britney over time. We name names, revealing who we believed framed Britney.
To provide a context to this episode, ‘Who Framed Britney Spears?’ dropped the week after the world witnessed Bill Cosby walk free from prison following a Supreme Court’s decision to honour a so-called non-prosecution deal between two men - a powerful prosecutor, Bruce Castor, and Cosby. This alleged deal took place in secret. No-one knew about it including Bruce Castor’s team, none of the victims or prosecutors knew about its existence - nor was it ever documented or written down.
Cosby is free. Britney is not. Listen to the episode and get angry.
