Summary
Combining scientific studies with the voices of real women of all ages, Renee Engeln makes clear that, to truly fulfill their potential, society must break free from cultural forces that feed destructive desires, attitudes, and words, from fat-shaming to denigrating commentary about other women. She provides inspiration and workable solutions to help girls and women overcome negative attitudes and embrace their whole selves, to transform their lives, claim the futures they deserve, and, ultimately, change their world
