Bonnie Ratliff is a single mom to two children in Southern California. She started TheShapeofaMother.com in 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. She is currently a full time student majoring in English and minoring in Women's Studies. After she graduates, Bonnie intends to continue working for the betterment of women everywhere. When she's not studying, Bonnie mostly sleeps and also enjoys Harry Potter, camping, and exploring her hometown with her kids.
