Emma Dabiri: Bodies, ageing, and Heather Shimmer lipstick

When judge ourselves less, we judge each other less too, and vice versa. Activist and broadcaster Emma Dabiri’s academic work critiques the image-conscious society we live in.


In this chat, Fearne and Emma explore attitudes to everything from ageing, to weight, to race. Plus, Emma explains how much of our beauty culture is specific to the West, by comparing it to other cultures around the world.


They also talk about how we can critique beauty culture while still loving the magic of self-expression and adornment and art.


Emma’s book, Disobedient Bodies: Reclaim Your Unruly Beauty, is out now.
