A Book Recommendation for Women

While, Wired has only been around for 3 years,  I've spent my entire career focused on health and wellness. And, I can honestly say that not a single week has passed without at least one woman telling a story of how their perception of themselves is shaped by their weight (and age). Recently, at a party a woman told me that she "hated her body." Just recalling her face and the self-imposed internal struggle makes me sad. 

As you know, culture and trauma are only a few of the many forces that can steal a woman's access to her true power and beauty. I'm always looking for tools and resources to help women celebrate their bodies and their lives. With that in mind, I want to let you know about "Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, an important and insightful book from Roxane Gay. 


“When you’re overweight, your body becomes a matter of public record in many respects. Your body is constantly and prominently on display. People project assumed narratives onto your body and are not at all interest in the truth of your body, whatever that truth might be. Fat, much like skin color, is something you cannot hide, no matter how dark the clothing you wear, or how diligently you avoid horizontal stripes.”

--Roxane Gay, author of Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body
