#Repost @botanarchy ・・・ Women Wimmin Womyn Wednesday ………………………………………… Melanie Klein taught me nearly everything I know about feminism, and is a beacon of pluripotent prowess with a heroic body of work exploring body confidence, leadership and visibility. She is also a successful writer, speaker, and professor of Sociology and Women’s Studies, and the first person I look to when I am in need of a compassionate and erudite voice in today’s media saturated landscape. The gristle of her work is centered around media literacy education, body image, and the intersectional analysis of systems of power and privilege, and this untamed spirit of inclusivity and activism shoots like a comet through her work in academia and the public sector. As my Women’s Studies professor, she taught me not only how to be a true ally to others, but also how to be a fierce ally to myself. Her work is transformative and transpersonal, mending chasms in both the social fabric and the mind-body axis. After being of service for more than 20 years in the areas of Sociology, Women's Studies, Media Literacy, Body Image and Body Confidence, Yoga and Meditation, Melanie is expanding her offerings to include private coaching for women who are ready to live unapologetically. If you’d like to increase your confidence, feel courageous and reveal the many shades of brilliance only you can offer the world them working with Melanie is for you! This is for renegades, new thought leaders, new executive leaders, next-level entrepreneurs, paradigm shifters, or anyone who knows walking in greatness is for the greater good. When you go for it, the possibilities are endless and she'd love to guide you through experiencing your unique value in the world and into a place into a place of authentic confidence. This is the place where whispers become roars and where YOU kick down doors and let nothing stop you. I couldn’t be more emphatic about her work. I encourage all intrepid seekers and paradigm-shifters at a crossroads in their work to seek her out via @melmelklein and see how she can help you move, mend, and manifest. . . . #womenhealingwomen #feministaf #lifecoach #bodypositivity #intersectionalfeminism #body
#Repost @mynameisjessamyn ・・・ I took the @freefigure fat census today and it reminded me why the #bodypositivity movement feels like complete & utter bullshit to so many people. You see, @freefigure's fat census is revolutionary as fuck- it epitomizes the goals of #fatacceptance & #fatpositivity in a way that actually made me glad to see a lengthy google doc for once. But #bodypositivity, one of #fatpositivity's proverbial children, has much less clear goals- it's been gentrified and diluted to the point where anyone with an Instagram can appropriate the movement for their personal gain. Even though I generally advocate for body positivity, I can't deny that I'm frequently flummoxed by some of the people and corporations who claim to identify with the movement- it's like watching the laziest bunch of wolves in sheep's clothing ever. And I can't say I really care about trying to steer the ship a different way- frankly, once the oppressor has started wearing your clothes, it's usually time to find a new outfit. If you identify as fat (or whatever word makes you feel comfortable), please take the @freefigure Fat Census- the link is in my profile. If you don't identify as fat but you do identify as an ally, please donate to @freefigure so they can keep this shit going. Throwback to kicking it w/ @ariannahuff at the @thrive #fuellist event last week. No words to express my gratitude. ☄️☄️☄️
