Being a Woman... for Men

Welcome to Being a Woman… For Men. A show where a guy, me, Ethan Banville, talks to women about obstacles they’ve faced in their lives and careers just for being women. Don’t worry, dudes and bros, this show isn’t a bunch of angry people screaming into a microphone. It’s a casual, funny and informative hour where I talk with executives, comedians, teachers, writers, lingerie makers, athletes and more who share life experiences that women don’t normally share with men. That’s right, we’ve got the secrets! The keys to forming stronger peer relationships with the opposite sex! And ladies, we’ve got amazing guests with relatable stories that you’ll love, too! You are not alone!

What started as a small three person staff has grown over the years into a service that covers the entire Niagara area, including the always busy Niagara Falls. Her work with education programs works to educate all generations how to stop events from happening and report them when they do.

On this week's episode of Being A Woman... For Men we talk with Alicia Bartley, a lawyer who works in property law, working with developers, community groups and government agencies. Amazingly smart, driven and a textbook example of a great work/life balance, Alicia shares her story of how she found her way into law, how she chose a smaller firm over a large, competitive one, and how she participates in endurance sports as a way of refueling for work and life. It's a great interview with someone with a great sense of what's important in life who discovered what she wanted and wasn't afraid of the societal pressures that would try to tell her otherwise.
