Ladies, Torch Your Spanx

Keen as always to blend my passions for feminism, pop culture and better body image, I wrote this article as a wry and informative rallying cry: “Ladies, torch your Spanx!”

I’m super proud to have it published by Birdee Magazine, an online hub that encourages young women to be clever and witty and strong – to stand up for what they believe in and feel good about themselves for doing so.

Here’s a little taste of my article:

I have a confession to make: I bought Spanx. Not one pair but two, of the ‘super-duper butt and thigh trimming’ ilk.

I know, I know – feminist cringe. The horror, the hypocrisy, the materialism, the vanity…

The humanity.

I’ve had some lovely feedback about the piece so far including one awesome woman’s vow to turn her Spanx “into decorative snowflakes with a pair of scissors right now”. Right on, sister!

So, happy reading. I hope you find the article thought-provoking, giggle-worthy and maybe a wee bit inspiring…
