Megan Jayne Crabbe is the pastel-clad queen behind the BodyPosiPanda Instagram handle. For years, she has used her platform to uplift women, promote body positivity, and speak about feminism. In 2017, she published "Body Positive Power", which was one of the first books to contribute to the discourse of body positivity in the 21st century. In this episode, Megan opens up about her journey, her life online, her knowledge of the toxic beauty industry and how it thrives on consumer discomfort, and how body positivity fits into modern feminism.
