Help with plurals

Post by sallyaross » Sat Aug 03, 2013 2:43 pm

Hi all. I wonder if you can help me with the sentence below? Would it be:

...how women are identified by way of their bodies; or how women are identified by way of their body?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

The singular is marginally more natural.
