    Emily Ratajkowski on Being Your Own Best Advocate

    When Emily Ratajkowski was asked to appear in a music video in 2013, she didn’t expect it to catapult her to overnight fame. Since then, she’s appeared in movies like ‘Gone Girl,’ walked the runway at New York Fashion week and launched her own swimwear line. And last year, Emily’s essay for ‘The Cut’ about objectification and power imbalances she experienced went viral, landing her a book deal for her new essay collection, ‘My Body.’ This week, she’s joining us to talk about how she learned to advocate for herself. 

    In this episode, Emily talks about:

    How her career trajectory shaped her politics

    Recovering from moments where she felt professionally undermined

    Deciding to disclose others’ bad behavior — and dealing with the backlash

    Learning to take her time with decisions

    How motherhood has changed her relationship with herself and her work
