Book Overview

A deeply honest investigation of what it means to be a woman and a commodity from Emily Ratajkowski, the archetypal, multi-hyphenate 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 twenty-one, 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.

   she told a story of her journey
It is a diary of her moods with her body. She feels that she is human and that it is a journey of her relationship with her body. It's not a practical book to use. The price is not worth it. Emily Rata has a book coming out.

   AMAZING heartfelt book!
Thank you so much! I appreciate your honesty and knowledge. Your complicated feelings about earning a living off your image while also trying to not be only viewed as a sex symbol was powerful to read. I was able to confront my own biases, like dismissing women who pose in sexual pictures as shallow instead of seeing them as fully complicated humans. I will look at the images differently now that I have read your book. I would like to wish you and your family peace and joy. I devoured this in a single day.

It's a good idea to read it in a day. This is the first time I have read this format. It causes you to think about how your experiences in womanhood have shaped your relationship with yourself. Emily, you did a great job! !
