In this installment of Lisa's Book Club, Lisa and Whitney Call dive into part one of Chapter 4 of More Than a Body by Drs. Lindsay & Lexie Kite, "From Divided To United as Women". They explore the competitive space that women often find themselves in as a result of societal messages which say that there's only so much space to go around—and that women should take up less. What does body image have to do with female stereotypes that suggest women are "catty" or "vicious"—and who benefits from that? (Hint: it's not women.) Whitney recalls her own journey of body transformations and how people spoke differently to her depending on her appearance. Lisa ponders the section of her closet that was once dedicated to jeans in every size. They discuss how women can stick together and celebrate each other as their bodies naturally change.
