You’re Invited To Our Big Night

The body rules have been broken. We've banished diets, reclaimed fitness, and redefined the beauty standard over and over and over again. Now, meet the women who are leading the charge. In celebration of my new book, Big Girl, we are hosting an evening with four influencers who are actively breaking the mold. Leading by example in their own lives, they are changing the way we eat and move and look at our bodies on a grand scale.

Meet our panelists below; then, RSVP to join us on January 7, 2016, right here at Refinery29 HQ, for Going Big: Breaking The Rules Of Food, Fitness, And Body Image
. Bonus: The first 50 guests to RSVP will receive a free copy of Big Girl!
