Last week we shared model Ashley Graham’s incredibly inspiring TED talk on body confidence. It’s a must watch for all women, regardless of size, cellulite and a certain preoccupation with perceived flaws promoted by the fashion and beauty industries that have a vested financial interest in fixing us.
Ashley Graham challenges us to take another route, one in we banish the self-loathing and learn to embrace the woman in the mirror. This strategy has been fundamental to AOC since 2009, and we stand firm on these convictions.
