Glennon Doyle is arguably one of the most successful memoir writers of all time.
Her latest book, Untamed, opens with a story of a cheetah at the zoo that performs a “Cheetah run” for the crowd. Watching the choreographed scene unfold, Glennon identifies that women are similarly tamed from birth by systems that include misogyny, body shaming, religious doctrine and the suppression of their wants and desires.
Diving deep into these subjects, the book deals with the author’s path to uncaging herself from society’s expectations for what a woman should be.
Since its release, Glennon has emerged as the informal leader of an army of women who are embracing their truth, regardless of how the world (and people closest to them) respond.
