In part two of my conversation with Steph Yeboah we discuss the idea that certain bodies dominate the body positive conversation, further marginalising the people who stand to gain the most from the movement and how the media have so much to answer for in terms of promoting certain more 'acceptable' bodies over others. We also talk about the damaging stereotypes that black women live with on a daily basis and how to be an ally for POC by listening, sharing their experiences and supporting their work. Finally we talk about how to build body confidence and be unapologetically yourself. Join in our #bodyapology challenge too.
