Ashley Graham is a talented model, designer, TV host, producer, and all-around trailblazer for other curvy women in the fashion industry. Her voice is powerful, and she's making leaps and bounds for size inclusion and body diversity. So, why is it that she's still constantly called "brave" for just living her life?
The body-positivity movement is kind of like a double-edged sword. On one hand, she's truly making a difference not only in the industry but in other women's lives. On the other, being told she's "brave" for simply putting on a swimsuit is getting old.
As for her future, she says there are a lot more walls to break through — especially when she compares her accomplishments with straight-sized models.
"There are many, many, many more covers I want to get. I’ve talked to Joan [Smalls], Karlie [Kloss], Amber [Valletta], and Gigi [Hadid], and they have had a multitude of covers that just come to them like it’s a regular thing. I would love to have that happen," she told FWD.
