Publisher's Summary

A deeply honest investigation of what it means to be a woman and a commodity from Emily Ratajkowski, the archetypal, multi-hyphenate celebrity of our time. 

Emily Ratajkowski is an acclaimed model and actress, an engaged political progressive, a formidable entrepreneur, a global social media phenomenon, and now, a writer. Rocketing to world fame at age 21, Ratajkowski sparked both praise and furor with the provocative display of her body as an unapologetic statement of feminist empowerment. The subsequent evolution in her thinking about our culture’s commodification of women is the subject of this book.

My Body is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men's treatment of women and women's rationalizations for accepting that treatment. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the grey area between consent and abuse.  

Nuanced, unflinching, and incisive, My Body marks the debut of a fierce writer brimming with courage and intelligence.

so vain..

Kept hoping for a redeeming quality to come through.. like yes, my I exploit my body for money.. BUT my brain and heart are what matters.. there was none of that. Stories upon stories of being a hot girl. Truly feels like all she cares about and values herself upon are her looks.

Sad

Sad that this beautiful girl with a beautiful body felt this way growing up. She sounded bored when reading her story.

The sad story of a pretty woman

I was trying to find something positive about her life, but this is a compendium of all the different disgraces of having a beautiful body. And kind of questioning it’s ownership. (Btw you are the owner, just to set the record straight ) . And It’s also about men trying and taking advantage of her, physically and economically.

I would say is also entertaining. She goes into detail narratives of for example the blurred lines video production that’s fantastic intimate view of affairs. Until of course someone, in this case Robin, grubs her and kills the whole story.

No happy endings yet.

Awesome that she narrates the book, great hearing your story form your voice, and did I feel at some point you cried ?


Anywho, Emily, hope you find happiness. Don’t complain about been beautiful, ultimately it gave you everything you are.

Written with candor and insight.

Her experiences as a woman growing up in this society were very relatable, even if you're not famous for your looks. Exceptionally well written.

I don’t feel so alone

Emily,
Your stories have a great vulnerability and curiosity to them that I think any beautiful young girl relates to at some point. Feeling the power your sexuality gives you then finding yourself used and powerless. It’s a hard things to live through and understand and you did it all under mass media coverage. I admire you and I feel close to you. I feel my body will carry me in proper function no matter what. Thank you.

Life Changing!!

I'm a 56 yo mother of a 25 yo daughter and I just texted her that she and her friends need to get this book IMMEDIATELY!!! Emrata (her insta name) is such an incredibly complex, insightful, deep and brilliant storyteller! I could SO relate to this book and it helped me reframe a lot of situations that have occurred in my life for which I have felt shame and regret. I love autobiographies and have read everything from Madeleine Albright to Keith Richards but this is by far the most well written, compelling, important, and relatable autobiography I've ever read!! I can't understand the critics of this book - its magnificent and honestly I think will be one of the most important feminist/human biographies of this era!!! Thank you for truly changing my life!!!

My body

I wasn’t really going into this book with a great deal of expectations but ended up really loving it and being able to relate in some type of way. If you need a book to make you feel empowered in your own body and realize that every women has different struggles and different point of views I would recommend it
