The Body Liberation Project by Chrissy King
Former fitness coach Chrissy King has written a fantastic and emphatic book about body liberation with the goal of finding actual freedom in our bodies—not through willpower and the “body positivity” movement of today, but by decolonizing our ideas and understanding that at our essence we are so much more than our physical bodies. King challenges us to understand that body positivity isn’t about just loving your body, but should be about demanding justice for all bodies, especially the most marginalized. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has found themselves on the margins or who wants to work toward collective liberation. “We are inherently worthy because we exist, not because of what we look like.” —S.B.
