What's it about?

It takes bravery and strength to be vulnerable enough to recount painful life experiences—especially when the battle is against patriarchy, beauty standards, and systemic prejudice. The women authors of these autobiographies and memoirs have come out on top when it comes to defying societal standards and expectations, showing us the power that lies within all of us. Get inspired by their personal experiences with grappling with body positivity and acceptance, the complex expressions of race and immigration on identity, and finding gratitude in failure.
