For Ravneet Vohra, founder of Oakland-based magazine Wear Your Voice, getting dressed is more than a matter of clothes — it’s an act of reclaiming identity. Vohra was sexually abused as a young child, and after years of feeling disempowered, she’s now on a mission to break the silence around the many things we keep hush. KALW's Hana Baba sat down with Vohra to learn more.

VOHRA: The size of my calves and the size of my thighs are none of your business. We are not defined by these Eurocentric beauty standards.

Hana Baba is host of Crosscurrents, KALW's weeknight newsmagazine that broadcasts on KALW Public Radio in the San Francisco Bay Area.
