Marginalized Women & Brazilian Butt Lifts Part 2

This is part two of our Marginalized Women and Brazilian Butt Lifts discussion. On this episode we continue our discussion about the dangers of the popular Brazilian Butt Lift cosmetic surgery procedure. We cover the stories of the victims of a notorious Miami clinic that performs many BBLs. And we highlight The Body Is Not An Apology, a movement started by Sonya Renee Taylor committed to cultivating global radical self-love and bodily empowerment.
