Summary
A deeply honest investigation of what it means to be a woman and a commodity from Emily Ratajkowski, the archetypal, multihyphenate celebrity of our time. Emily Ratajkowski is an acclaimed model and actress, an engaged political progressive, a formidable entrepreneur, a global social media phenomenon, and now, a writer. Rocketing to world fame at age twentyone, Ratajkowski sparked both praise and furor with the provocative display of her body as an unapologetic statement of feminist empowerment. The subsequent evolution in her thinking about our culture's commodification of women is the subject of this book. My Body is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men's treatment of women and women's rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski's life while investigating the culture's fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women's sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the grey area between consent and abuse. Nuanced, unflinching, and incisive, My Body marks the debut of a fierce writer brimming with courage and intelligence. 'This is the book for every woman trying to place their body on the map of consumption vs control, and every woman who wants to better understand her impulses. It left me much changed' Lena Dunham 'I read these pages, breathless with recognition, and the thrill of reading a new voice telling it like it is' Dani Shapiro 'Emily Ratajkowski's first essay collection needs to be read by everyone [...] both pageturning and moving as hell' Amy Schumer
