In a revolutionary departure from the corporate self-help and body-positivity movement, Sonya Renee Taylor examines the intersection of radical self-love and social justice in The Body Is Not an Apology: The Power of Radical Self-Love. This book identifies the correlation between systems of oppression and our relationships to our bodies. Sonya believes that radical self-love is our native tongue but that body terrorism—through toxic media messaging, systemic bigotry and inequality, and years of shaming—has caused us to forget how to speak it to ourselves and others. Sonya places radical self-love in conversation with feminism as a strategy and tool to not only dismantle our shame and self-loathing but global systems of injustice as well. This book, further, celebrates our varying intersectional identities by providing inquiries, reflections, and tools for practicing radical self-love. Language forms our relationship to our body and, as Sonya suggests, must also be used as a tool to change how we experience our bodies. When people make peace with their bodies, they will finally have the capacity to truly make peace with the bodies of others.
