This Girl Can by Giovannah Philippeaux

So this went viral and rightly so.

I am loving the diversity of color, age, body, and ability shown in this video; all women are represented. This video is not about the male gaze, it is not about making grown full-figured women look like little girls or perpetual teens. It is about embracing the curve and the strength of the full-figured female form. A call to action, encouraging woman to take of themselves FOR themselves and not for others. Loving the message and every inch of this video. It is exciting to see this come out and get as much attention as it has; I hope this leads to major change regarding how we see women and what we expect of women. I know it has already changed me. Exciting!
