Thank you for taking time to participate in my research. This project is based in poetic inquiry research to explore the body positive movement. I hope to learn how the body positive movement is changing beauty standards.

All of the poetry included here is written by myself and has been inspired by my own journey through body positivity  as well as the social media activities of the movement. I created the hashtag #FatWomenAre as a nod to the women out there existing as they are in the body they have right at this very moment.

Your comments and feedback will help to answer my research questions. Your participation is greatly appreciated and I thank you kindly for any time you spent here.
