ISN'T IT TIME TO LOVE YOUR BODY?

Society sets impossible standards for women and girls today.

Denigrations such as "saddlebags," "cankles," "chicken neck," and "thigh gap" have become common and increase female body shame and disgust.

Kathryn White came to Washington many years ago during a cross-country bicycle trip, and knew she wanted to return to Seattle. She eventually got her masters at the UW.

I received this book through Goodreads Giveaway. At first, I was skeptical that I would be able to relate to her story. But the power of this message transcends the differences in gender. Kathryn V. White has exposed her emotions through her words as part of her courageous journey toward healing and wholeness. A truly inspirational voyage.
