Caitlin talks about why fit is a feminist issue:
But when you’ve internalized the social messages that you are weak because you are a woman, well, just existing in the world becomes a lot harder than it needs to be. And when you pursue fitness simply so you can fit a new definition of “sexy,” you are continuing to buy into a system of thought that says women’s highest value lies in how they look to others.
I think it is critical that we feminists engage with fitness and athletics in a way that takes these things seriously and recognizes their potential to change lives for the better. It doesn’t have to be about hating yourself and your body, nor does it have to be about embracing fascist beauty standards. It can also be about loving your body and wanting to take the best possible care of yourself. It can also be about rejecting the social equation that says to be a woman is to be weak and in need of protection. It can be about redefining yourself as a creature of strength and power.
