Roxane Gay (Author)

In this episode, Roxane and Isha explore the obsession with the scrutinization of our bodies and the role misogyny plays in that scrutiny. As a writer and social commentator, Roxane explains why she not only doesn’t claim the title of activist, but she also doesn’t do the work she does with the intention of activating. She is simply telling her story and sharing her experience. But sometimes that's enough to get put on the proverbial pedestal.

You can hear more from Roxane in her newsletter, The Audacity, and on her podcast, The Roxane Gay Agenda.
