According to Metropolitan, an imprint of Henry Holt and Company, Ratajkowski will explore “what it means to be a woman and a commodity,” how men treat women and why women permit it. “Emily Ratajkowski reveals herself to be devastatingly honest, nuanced, and strong — I’m not surprised that she thinks of herself first as a writer,” Metropolitan editor Sara Bershtel said in a statement Friday. She is an entrepreneur and activist who has supported Bernie Sanders' two presidential campaigns and designed dresses for which part of the proceeds are given to Planned Parenthood.
