Note! The body positive activism movement is multifaceted; there are different approaches, schools of thinking, and ways of learning, much like feminism and other movements as well. Of course, while pieces might move independently, body positive activism proponents all believe the same thing. Something akin to: All bodies are equal. I’ve created a list of websites, blogs, social media sites, and resources for you that relate to body activism. I’m definitely not responsible for the content on these sites, because, y’know, I have zero control over what they post; as of now, though, I believe these resources may be helpful for you. If you find one that goes rogue, doesn’t work for you or you disagree with, don’t fret. Skip it and go find the ones that do!
