On today’s episode, we talk about how to liberate your body
Only 4% of women will call themselves beautiful.
That statistics just broke my heart… The truth is I was part of that 96% not finding themselves beautiful for most of my life. To be real it’s almost an act of courage to accept your body in today’s world.
One of the most powerful agents in liberating myself from body shaming has been the studying of the concept of patriarchal beauty standard. The historical and economic reasons behind where we are with women’s body expectations in the year 2000. Fascinating and liberating experience and that’s what I want to share with you today.
Our guest today is Jess Baker, an author, international speaker and blogger with a background in mental health where she’s worked as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Specialist. She described herself as an unabashed fat chick and a proponent of harnessing the magnificent power of shame resilience!
