Regena is a sought-after speaker on the empowerment of women and is grateful for all invitations to collaborate, but her rigorous teaching schedule requires her to be selective with her yeses — because a yes from Regena is a whole-hearted, all-in hell yes.
How to up your chances of a hell yes:
Easy no thank-yous:
Something else entirely:
School of Womanly Arts is keen to hear about the creative, inspiring, original work of women, especially by women whose voices the dominant culture oppresses — women of color, transgender women, women with disabilities … Although it may not be appropriate for an interview or marketing collaboration — and due to volume, unfortunately, we cannot promise a response — if there’s something you think we should check out because it comes from a woman you think we should know, please share in the form below in the field for “Anything else you would like to tell us?” No promises, but we may find a way to share it with the School of Womanly Arts community.
If you know you’d like to feature Regena’s work, but don’t have a set editorial direction, topics she speaks to frequently are:
Sample interview questions:
You often say, “Women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet.” What do you mean by that?
Why are so many women overwhelmed? And what can be done about it?
You’ve been quoted as saying, “Desire is the interface between you and that which is greater than you.” Can you tell me more about that?
Why, oh why, should we use the word “pussy”? And why is it that so many women don’t want to?
In your book, you write about the importance of language, and shared language, and the problems you see in how we teach little girls about their bodies. Can you speak to that?
What do women want?
Regena Thomashauer (a.k.a. “Mama Gena”) is a teacher and best-selling author, mother and media personality, and founder and CEO of the School of Womanly Arts, which began in her living room in 1998 and has since grown into a global movement. She believes that women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet, and that as people of all genders reclaim the magnificence of the feminine, the patriarchy will fall, liberating us all.
Thomashauer’s approach stems from decades of research in the social, cultural, and economic history of women. Her distinctive style — at once irreverent, unwavering, affirming, and swear-y — has engaged thousands from all over the world.
In addition to leading the School of Womanly Arts, Thomashauer has authored four popular books, including her newest New York Times Bestseller, Pussy: A Reclamation, and has been featured widely as a leading expert in modern feminism. She lives and works in New York City. Website: www.mamagenas.com
