Stronger: Changing Everything I Knew About Women’s Strength

by Poorna Bell


Physical activity isn't supposed to be a punishment, yet a lot of people are shamed into exercising to lose weight. This mainly affects women who are not only scrutinized for their appearance from their youngest years but also seen as less physically strong than men. But can qualities such as higher testosterone production really determine one's strength?

Poorna Bell shows us that every woman can access her inner strength. As a professional powerlifter and journalist, Bell speaks from personal experience and blends her perspective with other women's stories to create an inspiring insight into the meaning of strength.

Bell's book will make you question everything you were taught about being a strong woman and empower you to become a more confident version of yourself.
