Women shouldn’t body shame other women
This is an old post I wrote for The Huffington Post. It’s a coupe of years old now but it’s still so relevant
My mother recently wrote an article in the Daily Mail addressing how she raised me and my 15-year-old sister to be respectable and kind towards other women and wear whatever clothes we feel comfortable in.
The article got a lot of mixed attention. Young people were praising her for allowing us to wear the clothes we want without feeling ashamed of our bodies. The older generation were, unfortunately, not so kind. With the article’s popularity, it sparked a Loose Women appearance and many other adjoining articles about her controversial parenting techniques. I knew that the article would gain negative attention, but I didn’t think it would be to this degree.
