I am Lianne McTavish (firstname.lastname@example.org), a 48-year-old female professor, who in 2010 decided to combine my identities (scholar/gym rat) to create Feminist Figure Girl, a bodybuilding honey badger. I started this blog when I was training and dieting for my first figure competition, held in June of 2011. I have now written a book inspired by this process, published by SUNY Press in 2015. This blog is filled with feminist reflections on food, working out, sexuality, and bodies, and is now collaborative, featuring ‘Ask a Trainer’ with advice from professional personal trainer Deanna Harder (email@example.com). We invite your feedback.
