Every Body

Every Body

Celebrate, respect and accept ALL bodies – especially your own


We all have a body. They don't always function the same as other people's. And they certainly don't all look the same. But one thing is certain ­- every body deserves respect. This is an essential guide to embracing and respecting all bodies, for readers aged 9+.

Sometimes social media can make us feel like we're not good enough if we don't have a 'perfect' body. But the truth is, everyone feels bad about their bodies sometimes – even celebrities with millions of followers.

Author and campaigner Molly Forbes is here to show you that you - and ONLY you - get to decide how you feel about your body. And if we want to change the conversation around body image, we need to advocate for every single body - including those that look or function differently from our own.

It's time to stop criticising the way we look, and celebrate all our glorious differences!
