Women are con­stantly be­ing mes­saged to about size, weight, skin tones and more. It cre­ates a mind­set of how we should view our­selves which can cre­ate a stigma. Phys­i­cal Disobe­di­ence as­serts that den­i­grat­ing our bod­ies is, in prac­tice, an act of sub­mis­sion to in­equal­ity. When we de­cide to take a stand on in­di­vid­ual phys­i­cal­ity, recla­ma­tion of the au­thor­ity and the abil­ity to sus­tain our ef­forts in ac­tivism: the protests, com­mu­nity ser­vice, and emo­tional re­silience it takes to face the news and stay en­gaged.

This book's fo­cus on well­ness as an act of non­vi­o­lence to­ward our bod­ies, and em­brac­ing them through diet and ex­er­cise, fash­ion and so­cial me­dia, al­ter­na­tive ther­a­pies, mu sic, and moth­er­hood. The fo­cus is to ig­nite the body in a healthy way.
