On this week’s podcast, the actress Cleopatra Coleman reads “My Body Doesn’t Belong to You,” an essay about a woman who feels increasingly dispossessed of her physical self.

Heather Burtman’s essay was published this year in Modern Love and received an outpouring of responses from readers who also longed for a time before the male gaze. Now, in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement, Ms. Burtman reflects on her essay’s enduring relevance.

Ms. Coleman is best known for her role in the comedy series “The Last Man on Earth.” Follow her on Twitter and Instagram.
