Kristen Millares Young author of SUBDUCTION, joins three other authors in conversation about the body in KUOW!

This conversation is wide ranging, touching on health and the internal experiences of having a body, as well as the external forces and cruelty that can impact the body. Our three speakers search for ways to move past doubt and silence to find joy in self-ownership.

This episode of Speakers Forum is a hard but crucial conversation. Authors Grace Talusan, Kristen Millares Young, and Michelle Bowdler act as our guides through discussions of pain, self-care, and a culture that uses shame to keep women in line.
