Sonya Renee Taylor, author of The Body Is Not an Apology
This marvelous manifesto on radical self-love is life altering--required reading for anyone who struggles with body image. Come join us for a special evening with writer, performance poet, and transformational leader Sonya Renee Taylor. This event is cosponsored by Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin and the UWM Women's Resource Center.
Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies.
The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate worldfor us all.
