10 Women Share Powerful Stories Of Self-Love

Women from all walks of life have shared the compelling stories behind their journeys to self-acceptance.

Harnaam Kaur, who rocks a beard as a result of living with PCOS, Fatemah Dhanji, who has been subjected to horrific racism for wearing a hijab, and Joanné Dion, who was bullied because she has albinism, are just some of the women who spoke about how they learned to love themselves.

The 10 incredible women feature in a campaign called ‘In Our Skin’, which was commissioned by Stoosh, a platform encouraging all BAME (black, Asian, and minority ethnic) women in the UK to be confident, unapologetic and have the right to express themselves freely.

Fatemah told HuffPost UK: “All the women that took part in the photo series remind us that learning to embrace the struggles we have with our bodies and expressing ourselves freely can be the driving force behind our achievements, happiness and success in every aspect of life.”
