As a British Asian woman, it is a radical act to talk about body image in a public space; as it's often considered taboo. But I did it anyway. Inspired by my own personal weight experiences, I sourced women volunteers of 18+ years, to submit 3 words as to why they love their bodies. Opposite of asking why we 'don't like' our bodies, it aims to blow the doors of 'body positivity' wide open.
