The Good Body examines women of all cultures and backgrounds and how they feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in.
Botox, bulimia, breast implants. Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues, rocks our view of what it means to have a “good body.” Whether undergoing botox injections or living beneath burkas, The Good Body examines women of all cultures and backgrounds and how they feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in.
