What does drinking have to do with female empowerment and feminism? We ask author Sarah Hepola to share her perspective on how society and pop culture influence women who drink dangerously.

Sarah has written an incredible memoir, Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget, that has placed her among the ranks of authors like Caroline Knapp and one of my personal favorites, Cheryl Strayed. Her essays have appeared in New York Times Magazine, Elle, Glamour, the Guardian, Slate, and Salon. We met with her while back to talk about the intersection between feminism, motherhood, and drinking.
