Continuing in our salute to “survivors and thrivers,” we’d like to recognize Cathy Thomas, also known as Lady Cee, who along with her husband, J.T., runs the YouTube Channel “Ex-JW Critical Thinker,” where she has been presenting a fascinating and informative series of interviews on the struggles of Jehovah’s Witness women who have overcome the stiflingly misogynistic world of the Society.  Lady Cee, herself a former Jehovah’s Witness, has made it her mission to draw attention to the plight of women in coercive organizations, and, using critical thinking skills along with her gentle wisdom and warm humor, keeps her interviews uplifting, educational, and thought-provoking. They’re both well worth a listen, if not a subscribe.
