Summertime Body Image is HARD!!

I know I am writing to folks across the globe, but here in the US, temperatures are hitting record highs, which seems to correlate with record high grumpy body image.

What Does Equality Have to Do With Your Body?

Today is Women’s Equality Day here in the United States.
