Bonnie Ratliff Crowder

Bonnie Ratliff is a single homeschooling mom to two children in Southern California. She started The Shape of a Mother in July of 2006 because she believed that women have the right to know the truth about what bodies look like, and that knowing the truth can help to heal from deeply painful self-esteem issues. Bonnie also blogs about body image for all women as well as other feminist issues at her personal blog, zebrabelly.com. She spent a year writing for BlogHer’s Own Your Beauty initiative. She hopes to make a major change in how women love themselves.

Within a month of SOAM’s creation, the London Guardian had done an article on the website. It has since been featured in The Orange County Register, Fitness and Mothering magazines, Today.com, The Daily Mail, The Huffington Post, Huffington Post Live, and two European television shows.
