Episode 15: From Good Girl to Sovereign Woman, with Monique Debose

Enough, the podcast

Monique DeBose is a transformational entertainer. What’s that, you ask? Well, she writes music, plays, and creates courses for women that change lives. I daresay she’ll have that effect on you in this podcast episode too. We meander into all kinds of provocative places as we unpack how Monique’s good girl conditioning has infiltrated her life, right down to what she thinks about going into a store, to how she mothers her sons. She shares generously about her own experience, as a woman of color, of how she’s moving out of good girl, and into sovereign woman. How? Monique is a big believer in finding a safe, supportive community during your transformative process. She also gives us a powerful exercise to start clearing our “want” and “desire” pipes. The flow in those “want” pipes is often clogged in women with good girl conditioning. Oh, and I’ve woven in some music from Monique’s new album, You Are The Sovereign One, to make this podcast even more transformational and experiential. Ready to step into sovereign woman?

Lambring had a publishing deal in Nashville, so you know she has strengthened that songwriting muscle. But after a few years of writing catchy songs for other people, she decided to do her own thing. I’m glad she did. Autonomy has some of the year’s best songwriting, but Lambring’s performances really give them life. This album is an astonishing venting of feminine rage -- not because Lambring is an angry woman, but because this album is all about examining the at times deadly pressures cis women face. Autonomy is an album about the expectations of patriarchy and learning how to flaunt them -- and still survive.

Joy Sounds: Music You Need To Know

Monique DeBose wants you to #JoinTheRallyCall.

Monique’s message and expression comes in multiple forms – as a singer, songwriter, actor, poet and playwright – making her a boundless artist that can’t be categorized. The song and video of her landmark song, “Rally Call,” is an important anthem for our time.
