My Body, My Words: a collection of bodies

Named by Bustle as a 2018 Feminist Book That Will Change Your Year

The war on body image is fought behind closed doors, in dressing rooms, closets, bathrooms, and in the darkest corners of our society. It is a war that has claimed many lives and will continue to do so as it rages, a war rooted in self-hatred and self-loathing, born out of the media and pop-culture’s idea of what it means to be beautiful. Beauty pageants, swimsuit calendars, “thigh gap,” for longer than we care to admit, Americans have allowed our children- girls and boys- to participate in a culture where they are rewarded for how they look rather than their strong minds and hearts.
Thankfully, the body positivity revolution has begun.

A gorgeous and powerful anthology exploring all things body image, My Body, My Words will take you on a journey through experiences of fear, hate, love, and evolution that writers of all ages, body types and backgrounds experience with their bodies, while calling for a self-love and a body positivity revolution.

In My Body, My Words, we take an unforgettable walk with writers through an array of physical temples, from abuse to discovery to triumph. We see our own spirit in these stories of glory and pain and uncover ultimate truths that illuminate our outer and inner selves.

Author of Time of the Locust: A Novel
Editors Amye Archer and Loren Kleinman put together a collection of body-centric essays that is so much greater than the sum of its (beautiful) parts. The anthology My Body, My Words is rich with stories of gender transformation, dressing-room breakdowns, yo-yo diets, judgmental grandmas, and falling in love. I loved Megan Galbraith’s sexy tale of a summer camp counselor skinny dip. Plus, 50 percent of the book sale proceeds go to the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media.
