The Body is Not an Apology


We suggest this…

if you struggle with body image, feel like you hate a part of your body (or all of it) or if your body is on the receiving end of criticism, shaming and discrimination (fat-phobia, racism, transphobia, ableism…).

A quick summary

This book is full of heart, love, joy and humour, as well as righteous rage. Sonya Renee Taylor is on a mission to set everyone free from the misery-inducing, suffocating restrictions of body shame and discrimination, and the totally artificial idea of a ‘norm’ or hierarchy of bodies. The Body is Not an Apology critiques the systems that create these restrictions, and also shows what each person can reclaim for themselves without waiting for permission or system change. The Body is Not an Apology is an eye-opening, paradigm-shifting, uplifting revolution in book form.


Publisher’s description

A global movement guided by love

World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. The Body is Not an Apology offers specific tools, actions and resources for confronting some of our most challenging systems of oppression, such as transphobia, racism and more. Together with the accompanying Your Body is Not an Apology Workbook, Taylor brings the practice of radical self-love to life.

“The Body is Not an Apology wrestles you free from the habit of your shame and declares you whole, right now, just as you are. To follow its revelations and teachings leave you different on the other side and undoubtedly more yourself” (Prentis Hemphill, founder and Director of The Black Embodiment Initiative)

“This is a radical, merciful, transformational book that will give you deep insights, inspiration, and concrete tools for launching the revolution right inside your own beloved body” (Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues and In the Body of the World)
