Guest: Diane Barth, LCSW, Psychotherapist, and Author, “I Know How You Feel: The Joy and Heartbreak of Friendship in Women’s Lives” The #MeToo movement has allowed women to say things not everyone wants to hear – that’s part of its power and why it’s brought a sense of solidarity among many women. “Empowerment through empathy” is how the movement’s founder describes it. Therapist Diane Barth says empathy is an elemental component of female friendship. But the #MeToo movement has also brought to light a “less favorable quality” of friendships between women.
