Can you call yourself a feminist and still want weight loss?
To help answer that question, we invited Grace Club founder Maggie Anderson for an exploration of feminism, weight loss, body autonomy, and how to create more compassion for yourself and others. Maggie is an avid learner and unlearner, a collaborator, community cultivator, yoga teacher, partner, and mother of two daughters.
In this reshared episode, you’ll find a spirited discussion that will challenge you to examine your beliefs, think critically about the messages you are receiving, and really unpack what your relationship with your body means to you.
