our womanhood ~ chapter II

As part of our latest campaign, we invited our community to take part in a shoot for womanhood. As with all our images, they remain untouched. 

We had a chat with Martha about what womanhood means to her and the journey she has been on.

"I am ashamed to say but I have beaten myself up over every aspect of myself for as long as I can remember. I really compare myself on every level to other women and I have only just recently realised how toxic that is for me to do. I'm finally starting to accept myself for who I am and enjoy being a young woman which is so freeing but, I definitely have a lifetime of learning to do and bad habits to unlearn.

I think since the age of 12 I have worried about my body and what other people will think of it. I have been on every diet you can imagine to try and get thinner. Over the last few years, I have started to come to terms with the fact I am just a bit bigger than the women I see in the media and that's ok and it doesn't make me any less beautiful or sexy.

When this opportunity came about to be an underwear model I just had to take it. It was so unbelievably out of my comfort zone but I just thought "If I can look at the other women on @wearewomanhood and think WOW her body is unreal, then maybe if I was one of those women I'd then see myself and think wow"!

This is the push I needed and I am so happy to now move forward as a young woman and be more gentle and accepting of myself and my body.
