Bad Ass Bitch of the Week: Sonya Renee

sonyareneeI can’t stop mind-applauding Sonya Renee, the founder of The Body is Not an Apology, which is an organization that promotes “radical self love and body empowerment.” They believe that “each time you unapologetically own your beauty, love your scars, heal your shame; you in turn give us permission to do the same.”

Her movement, which you can follow on Facebook was inspired by the glorious award winning poem of the same name. Here are a couple of lines from the poem, but honestly this is a must watch for Sonya’s iconic delivery.

The body is not a math test
The body is not a wrong answer

The body is no a failed class
You are not failing
The body is not an apology
