Publisher's Summary

We are in the midst of a cultural moment. #MeToo. #BlackLivesMatter. #TransIsBeautiful. #AbleismExists. #EffYourBeautyStandards. Those of us who don't fit into the "mythical norm" (White, male, cisgender, able-bodied, slender, Christian, etc.) - which is to say, most of us - are demanding our basic right: to know that who we are matters. To belong.

Being "othered" and the body shame it spurs is not "just" a feeling. Being erased and devalued impacts our ability to regulate our emotions, our relationships with others, our health and longevity, our finances, our ability to realize dreams, and whether we will be accepted, loved, or even safe.

Radical Belonging is not a simple self-love treatise. Focusing only on self-love ignores the important fact that we have negative experiences because our culture has targeted certain bodies and people for abuse or alienation. For marginalized people, a focus on self-love can be a spoonful of sugar that makes the oppression go down. This groundbreaking book goes further, helping us to manage the challenges that stem from oppression and moving beyond self-love and into belonging.

Enjoyed it a lot

I enjoyed this book and finished the whole thing in a short time which is unusual for me. I did find the heavy accent of the narrator distracting however. I often found myself noting her accent rather than listening to the content of the book. Otherwise learned a lot about gender and equity.
