J.K. Rowling Body Image Quote

This Empowering J.K. Rowling Quote Is a Reminder For Us All to Be Hermiones, Not Pansy Parkinsons

J.K. Rowling is a magical goddess in human form, and a throwback quote circulating the internet lately is yet another reminder of this indisputable fact. Just a few days ago, she reached out to a fan in need, and her thoughts on body image and women from years ago are just as empowering now as they were then. Read her insightful look into why women should focus on "being independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny" — not on what the number on the scales says. She also reminds women to be kind to each other (solidarity sisters!) and to always be Hermiones, never Pansy Parkinsons.
